Technically Zamboni is a brand of ice resurfacing machine, granted it has become synonymous, like kleenex.

remembered the Zuider Zee in The Netherlands and tried every variation and spelling I could think of...Zuiderland, Ziederland, Zee, Zeider, etc. I thought I tried Zeeland, too, but apparently not.

Part of me is of a mind that you should accept the commonly-misunderstood-to-be-the-same-thing "zirconium". But the other part of me wants everyone forced by this quiz to know the difference.

That's so funny that you pronounce it as "z". That sounds so wrong to me. I pronounce it as "z". I've heard others say "z" or even "z".

Zircon is a naturally-occuring gemstone; zirconia is a man-made diamond substitute. They gave different chemical compositions and structures, so no. They're only similar in spelling.

A bajillion other places say 'zed' for z: Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, India...it's 'zed' in the vast majority of the English-speaking world. Perhaps you want to rephrase the clue as 'outside the US' instead of British?

Even in every foreign language, the letter Z almost always sounds closer to its origin, Zeta, than Zee. However, as an American, I have to uphold my proud Zee origins, and declare that every other country/language to be a bunch of commies.

The clue is written in passive form, giving it two possible meanings. It could mean "Mugabe misled this country" or it could mean "The country that is misled by Mugabe". Since the focus is on the unknown in the sentence (it is a clue, after all), the passive sentence does make sense here.

Accept zircon? That is what it is called by jewellers, and well almost everyone eventhough it might not technically be correct.

Also a quote from the wiki page on zircon: Colourless specimens that show gem quality are a popular substitute for diamond and are also known as "Matura diamond".

As someone mentioned before they're not the same thing. Zircon is a mineral and Zirconia is an oxide of zirconium.
