Good thought clemment.

i suspect English, spanish and french are all traceable back to the griek zeta.

Possibly because british people say Zed, and also because that is what the letter is in French and spanish. Spanish probably had no influence, but I'm guessing the first two I mentioned did, as they were the ones who came over to our country and found out about it first, then fought over it. lol.

Why do you say "zed" instead of "z"? If it is to eliminate confusion between letters that should almost the same, how about b, c, d, e, g, p, t and v? How about m and n? To me "zed" would be more like a word than a letter. (grin)

Hi,

Yeah, maybe. I just know with the Scansoft voices Emily, Daniel,
Karen, and Sorina they use the sh sound for schedule. That drives me a
little nuts hearing that because to my ears that sounds wrong.

Not only that take the letter z. Here in the U.S. we say zee like that
but in most foreign countries they say zed. When typing, writing a
letter or something, and when the synth says zed it about drives me up
the wall. I have had to go into the Window-Eyes character dictionary
to enforce it to say zee no matter what synth because zed just sounds
too frickin' weird for me.

Smile.

Hi Thomas,
In actual fact I do say schedule with a k sound. I suppose it all depends on
area and accent.

Damien.
