Zebra said like "ZEB-rah" is sort of blowing my mind! I've always been interested in accents and languages and such, but I've never come across that pronunciation. I say ZEE-brah, and Aitch. I say Zee for "Z", but the Anglophile in me is just yearning to use zed instead--I don't know why I don't, since I use other fairly common British phrases (at least, I think they're fairly common British phrases!) like straightaway instead of right away, and "two weeks' time" instead of "in two weeks" and chuffed and such. Zed would certainly fit right in. :]Ashley

This is so interesting. I'd never heard 'zed' before until this thread.
@chrisco: "Ant" vs "Ont" is kind of a strange thing around here in my part of the South. Almost without exception, white people say "ant" and black people say "ont" or "ontie." I have no idea why that is.
