Optimization is spelled wrong





vspec
In the forum name the word optimization is spelled wrong. On the site its spelled "Optimisation" when it should be "Optimization"

for reference: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=optimisation&btnG=Google+Search

just giving a heads up Wink

If I'm not mistaken, "optimize" is what becomes of british "optimise" in American english.
words like "optimise", "realise" are the british versions and you get their American counterparts by replacing the "s" with "z". ("optimize", "realize").

so technically it's not wrong.

edit - contrary to my original post, the words with "z" are American and those with "s" are British. (from Merriam-webster online )

It's like it is here in Canada.

Color = Colour

Grey = Gray = Grey

There are many more like it.

It is just a matter of origin, not of incorrection.

Wrong is most aprropriately used as an adjective or noun, and sometimes a verb. Rarely is wrong an adverb.
