Mensagem:  Hello People I've found this passage on-line on the -ize,-ise issue: "In the US many nouns and adjectives are verbed by adding -ize (standardize). These same words usually end in -ise in Britain, despite the British dictionaries which show -ize as the main form with -ise as an alternative. Sometimes, even American holds a surprize. Makes you realise!" One consistency is the American -yze words (analyze) are all -yse in Britain." source: http://www.peak.org/~jeremy/dictionary/chapters/
