Right. I'm more talking about analyze/analyse. etc.

 

That's easy. The word analyse comes from the same route as electrolyse and hydrolyse and it should be spelt with an s.

 

For words like deputise or deputize both spellings are acceptable.

 

The word "analyze" means to make something anal.

Actually, in the American dialect of English they are considered the same to the point that Webster's gives "chiefly British spelling of analyze" as the only definition for analyse.:eek:

Webster's calls itself a dictionary of the English language- but it's a dictionary of the American language. Since it got its own title wrong I'm not suprised that it doesn't know what analyze means.

:D......True, but American and English can seem to be two entirely different languages sometimes.
