Z Is For Zee End

1 Z is for Zibska

I talked yesterday about how much I have enjoyed doing this challenge. Today it’s just about the last letter in the alphabet.

I had to spell out “Zee” in the title because if I had said “Z End” most of the English-speaking world would have thought it read “Zed End.” Pronouncing Z as “zed” is the part of the Australian vernacular I have resisted most. It makes no sense to me; D is not pronounced “ded”, nobody says “ged” for G nor “ped” for P. So why is Z any different? Although zed is a derivation of the original Greek zeta, B isn’t called “bed” (the Greek is beta).

I could have just called this post “Z is for Zebra & Zibska” but then I wouldn’t have been able to get into this phonetic phenomenon to complete this curiously quizzical conundrum.

    OMG you got to Z on the 26th!? “On Time!?” You are evil! I’m still working on “S”! 😛 But what’s with “Z is for Zee End”?? I thought you were doing “Z is for Zindra!”

    • PeepSideshow Darkward April 27, 2014 / 8:41 am
