Few words in the Basic English vocabulary begin with ⟨z⟩, though it occurs in words beginning with other letters. It is the least frequently used letter in written English , with a frequency of about 0. 07% in words.
⟨z⟩ is more common in the Oxford spelling of British English than in standard British English, as this variant prefers the more etymologically ‘correct’ -ize endings, which are closer to Greek, to -ise endings, which are closer to French; however, -yse is preferred over -yze in Oxford spelling, as it is closer to the original Greek roots of words like analyse. The most common variety of English it is used in is American English, which prefers both the -ize and -yze endings. One native Germanic English word that contains ‘z’, freeze (past froze, participle frozen) came to be spelled that way by convention, even though it could have been spelled with ‘s’ (as with choose, chose and chosen).
