zed
the actual way to say the last letter of the english alphabet if you are from canada!!!

we canadians do not say zee we say zed just like the rest of the common wealth!(for those who do not know the common wealth is all of the english colonies. think of the common wealth games all of those countries)


there is a sign that reads " e-z tax retunes"
British person- what does it mean 'e-zed' tax returns?
canadian person- it is the lazy americans way of saying easy, yes i know its dumb.
british person-so the zed makes the sound zee? why?
canadian person- only the lord knows why, i guess they just had to be different as always! :@

Zed
The way Canadians, British, Australians, and any other English-speaking country aside from the United States pronounce the final letter of the alphabet: Z. The American pronounciation "Zee" is derived from a now commonly obsolete late 17th century English dialect. The pronounciation "Zed" is ratified by the French "Zède", the Spanish and Italian "Zeta", and the Dutch "Zet", to name a few.
Eh, Bee, See, Dee, Ee, Eff, Gee, Aych, Eye, Jay, Kay, El, Em, Enn, Oh, Pee, Cue, Arr, Ess, Tee, You, Vee, Double-You, Ex, Why, **Zed.**

Zed
n. what you call a socially inept person that kills the mood, ends the party, ruins the joke. A Zed is *NOT* someone you want to have near you at a party when trying to meet people. Zed is at the end of the alphabet for a reason. Even Bruce Willis didn't get along with a Zed.
What the hell? No one wants to hear about your dog's diarrhea... quit being such a Zed and go somewhere else!
