    Note my corrections above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Naah.

    I just got fed up with people claiming that the z version was AmE. I decided to go with Oxford, Cassell, Collins and Longman, all British publishers of repute.

    ps. Congratulations. I didn't expect to be picked up quite so soon.

    I'd like to take the credit but, in all honesty, it passed me by until I clicked "Edit Post" to fix a punctuation typo and saw that "recognize" was underlined in red.

    I do understand all of them, perhaps because the OP and I use the same native language.
