One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.

- ‘The W and Z particles are called intermediate vector bosons and are the exchange particles for the weak interaction.’
- ‘The Z particle decayed almost instantaneously, but left a distinctive trace in the collision data.’
- ‘The W and Z particles are quite massive for elementary particles; they are roughly 100 times as massive as the proton.’

- ‘Initial operation involved low beam intensities, and these runs failed to produce W or Z particles.’
