Marketisation vs. Marketization

Reply Sat 31 Oct, 2009 05:44 pm
I've seen both and I'm curious as to which countries use which terms. I'm pretty sure this is just one of those "armour/armor" type words but does anyone know which country uses the suffix of "-sation" instead of "-zation"?

The use of the letter 'z' in endings such as -ize, ization, -izing, etc is more common in US English. The -ise, -isation, -ising endings are standard in British English. That is to say, the version of English which is standard in Great Britain, Ireland and the countries of the British Commonwealth (for example Canada, Australia, South Africa, Nigeria)

list here


Incidentally, British English speakers call the letter z "zed" whereas US English speakers generally call it "zee".
