The letter S instead of Z?

This question has been answered · 1 replies
Which country uses the S instead of the Z such as in words like organisation, is it England or America? And do all of the rest of the officially English speaking countries go with the British way? And also can you please give all the possible (as much as possible) words wherein the S is also Z.

Hi,
Ali.hWhich country uses the S instead of the Z such as in words like organisation, is it England or America?
I think Americans prefer the 'z' and that British spelling accepts both 's' and 'z'.
Ali.hAnd do all of the rest of the officially English speaking countries go with the British way?
I wouldn't know that.
Ali.hAnd also can you please give all the possible (as much as possible) words wherein the S is also Z.
