Bye Bye 'Z'

Soon we will have 25 alphabets in english language. English alphabet will be lose Z on June 1st. The announcement came from the English Language Central Commission (ELCC).


After carefully considering and debating the matter for over two years, the ELCC came to the conclusion that the letter “Z” should be removed from the English alphabet. The main objective of this change is to simplify the phonetic aspect of the language, and to unify the American and British spellings.

What will happen to the words that have the letter “z” in them? It depends on the word. According to the ELCC, words that started with a “z” will now start with an “x”.

Examples include:
zero becomes xero

Words that featured a “z” with the “s” sound, on the other hand, will now be officially written with the “s” (i.e., unifying the American and British spelling).

Examples include:
visualize becomes visualise

Let this change bring in US and UK vocabulary more close.

With so many games streaming data from the HAZEL on the fly. The methodology for the tests was remarkably straight for ward first from HAZEL DVD, then from hard disk. As the opportunity to install to HAZEL DVD COLLECTION is obviously a compelling argument for upgrading the hard disk.HERE'S LUCY

Allowing YOUNG INDIANA JONES CHRONICLES
players to jump to a certain point within the video stream. A YOUNG INDIANA JONES CHRONICLES DVD
can have up to eight different audio tracks and 32 subtitle tracks that the viewer can switch between at will. The YOUNG INDIANA JONES CHRONICLES DVD COLLECTION
format doesn't eliminate the differences between the two competing broadcasting formats.
