Again spelling. Bleh. In Finnish "J" is pronounced like the English pronounce "Y" at the start of word and way too often I forget to try a Y. I knew that tree.

Shouldn't question 4 be "British PRONUNCIATION of letter Z"? I can only think of one way to SPELL the letter "Z" - it's "Z"!!!

Unless you're British in which case it's spelled z-e-d. Which was the whole point of the question, I suspect!

Agreed the British spelling of Z is funny enough... Z! the pronunciation of Z however in British is ZED instead of the American ZEE. Really need to change the question!

No, many letters do have accepted spellings, and zee/zed is one of them. Aitch is another. By the way, zed is also the most often used pronunciation (and spelling) in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and a number of other countries, not just Britain.

No it is not the pronunciation that is asked here, but the spelling, not for the letter z, but the word representing that symbol.

You wouldnt call "e i g h t" the pronunciation of 8 either would you, and you certainly wouldnt say you spell it "8" The word is pronounced in several ways (even within just the english languages) but the pronunciation would be similar to "eit"

8 is the symbol, eit is the pronunciation and e i g h t is the spelling of the word the symbol represents.
