You know how there was a US spelling reform at some point and a lot of z's got changed to s's?

In Fallen London, they basically did the opposite, and to a much larger extent

@rockario (The z/s thing is a little complicated as there's variation between the z/s spellings outside of the US too.)

What sorts of examples of this are you seeing in Fallen London?

@emacsomancer @rockario Referring to the fact that the underground sea is referred to as the Zee, and related terms are enzedulated. Zubmarine, Zubmariner, Zzoup etc.

@rockario …ize is typically the US spelling, afaik. UK (except for the Times (or should that be Timez)) tends to use …ise.

@rockario Well, for values of backwards which include “it's complicated”
