The letter Z.
- ‘A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch, and it's pronounced zed, not zee, zed!’
- ‘It is a series of numbers, hyphens, naughts, strokes, and zeds.’
- ‘I keep putting too many dees and zeds in your name.’
Late Middle English: from French zède, via late Latin from Greek zēta (see zeta).
