    Letter Z is pronounced in 2 different way, depending on whether you're a speaker of British English (BE) OR the American English (AE).

    >> In BE, it's pronounced as "Zed" i.e. in phonetics, it can be written as: /zed/
    >> In AE, it's pronounced as "Zee" i.e. in phonetics, it can be written as: /zi:/ (long & stressed "i" sound at the end)
