    OK this got off-topic fast.
    Well, there's only so much you can say about lengthwise-cut cucumbers. The topic doesn't exactly call for much discussing.

    it is. but what about "z"?

    apparently, the "australian" way is "zed", but i just say z.
    I say 'zed', unless I'm singing the alphabet or speaking the alphabet in rhythm (because it must rhyme with 'v') or if I'm saying 'ZZ Top'.

    Hehe, sometimes I actually say that for a joke :).

    Well... not a joke, but just to be dumb.

    I'm reading your z's as "zed". It makes your post read strangely.

    And it's the Australian way without "scare quotes". If you pronounce it zee, you're pronouncing it the American way.

    Aitch and haitch are both correct in Australian English, though. I say aitch.

    Yeah, Ay-eN-Zee just sounds strange.

    Am i mistaken, or are about 25% of the people on these forums that post frequently Australian?

    Also, i didn't use them as "scare quotes".
  • I pronounce "H" as "aytch" and "z" as "zed".
