Ay bed ced ded ed eff ged
If you wouldn’t pronounce your ABCs like this, why do we say “zed” for Z? It’s dumb.
I didn’t know “zed” was a thing until I took a trip to the UK a couple years go. Man I was so confused the first time I heard it XD
Do they actually call DBZ "Dragon Ball Zed" over there, or does the "Zee" stick?
sometimes i wonder if we americans changed zed to zee just so the song would rhyme at the end
either way im used to zee and have said it all my life, but I'll admit that zed has this sorta imposing sound to it as it rolls off the tounge that gives off a feeling of finality and sorta fits
@SupahBerry we still say Dragon Ball Zee.
To be honest, I find english pronounciations kinda dumb in general.
Here I find it more natural but it's also because we pronounce the words the same way we write them.
I'll worry about the pronunciation of "z" in a nursery rhyme after everyone's learned pronounce "h" correctly.
"W" makes no sense IMO.
"Double u" despite it being two V's next to eachother: VV.
But you guys mostly pronounce it like "u" in words so I guess it works. Here we just say "v".
That derives from Latin, where "V"s were used instead of "U"s in the alphabet yet they were read as "U"s.
@Ernest the Panda Speak for yourself. I like to call it Dragon Ball Zed.
Also, considering berk is a vulgar slang term here, How To Train Your Dragon sounded like a very different movie to me.
