Taken aback? Yes, we all are. Letter Z removed!!!.There has been some news going around that the letter ‘Z’ will supposedly be removed from Alphabets. This came from the English Language Central Commission (ELCC).
They claimed, “After cautiously considering and discussing the issue for more than two years, the ELCC arrived at the resolution that the letter “Z” ought to be expelled from the English letters in order. The primary target of this change is to streamline the phonetic part of the language, and to bind together the American and British spellings.”

BYGONES ARE BYGONES, REALLY?
For a great many years, the Latin letter set has comprised of 26 letters. In any case, at one point in time, the letter Z — which was initially gotten from the Greek “zeta” — was removed from the letters in order. It was included back two or three hundred years after the fact.
Sometime around 300 BCE, or so it is guaranteed, Appius Claudius Crassus Caecus, improved the letter set in order to dispose of unused letters and include required letters (like G). There was a time of contradiction, however the outcome was that, for a briefish timeframe, there was a 21-letter Old Latin letter set: ABCDEFGHIKLMNOPQRSTVX.
Afterward, it turned out to be evident that a portion of the Greek letters were required in Latin, thus Y (Greek upsilon) and Z (Greek zeta) were attached toward the end, bringing about the 23-last Classical Latin letters in order: ABCDEFGHIKLMNOPQRSTVXYZ.
The letters in order utilized in Old English at first came up short on a Z, however similarly as the letters J, U, and W were added to the Classical Latin letter set, so different letters were added to, and erased from, the Old English letters in order.
So far as we are probably aware, the letter Z has never been expelled from a letter set utilized for English or some other present-day language.
What will happen to the words that have the letter “z” in them? It depends on the word. According to the ELCC, words that started with a “z” will now start with an “x”. Examples include:
- zero -> xero
- zoo -> xoo
- zone -> xone
- zodiac -> xodiac
HOAX COVERS THE TRUTH
Not many years, talk spread that the English Language Central Commission (ELCC) is expelling Z from the Latin letters in order starting at a specific date. The tattle asserts that Z would be supplanted with S in words, for example, “imagine” (which would become “picture”) and words that start with Z would be supplanted with X (as in “zoo” would become “xoo”). This year, as per Reddit, the alleged ELCC’s message read:
WELL WELL WELL….
In any case, this is just an on-going trick that has continued for quite a long time, and has been taken thoroughly outside of any relevant connection to the issue at hand.
The hazard of ‘Z’ getting expelled is zero.
Dozens of overzealous, unauthorized organizations utilize bizarre customized alphabetizations, minimizing “Z”. Citizens must criticize these crazy organizations of bozos so Z is prioritized.
Squeezing “Z” out is aggrandizing.
And there, we thought that we can live without ‘Z’?
