    So the general consensus seems to be that Aussies have it right and everything else is wrong, sounds a bit like the metric Vs imperial argument

    If I had to guess, the Aussies realize how cool Canadians are and have decided to try and sound like us.

    Yes, I was literally thinking the very same thing. In fact I call a GPZ, Gee Pee Zee.
    Yet ZRX is clearly ZED ARE EX (the correct way to say it I might add).

    I'm an Aussie and I call it the ZEE R X.

    I'm not sure if that comes from watching too many U.S. Youtube clips,but I think saying it that way just sounds tougher.

    As a spin off from this I thought I'd also though this into the pot....

    I thought I was aware of many of the differences between British and American English, but in the last few weeks, I've heard a few additional examples that I had no idea about until now.

    Niche - I always pronounce this as 'neesh', but recently I've heard at least a few guys online say 'nitch'. Is this common in the US, or are they an exception? I had never once heard this before, but I've now heard it several times from different people.

    Solder - Again, I had only ever heard this pronounced as 'solder' or 'saulder', but I've heard a couple of people say what sounds like 'sodder'.

    I suppose these aren't words you hear every day, which explains why I'd never heard these pronunciations before.

    The one that surprised me the most was first hearing 'herb' pronounced as 'erb'.

    On one level I can see why it makes sense since other words like 'hour' and 'honour' have a silent 'h' at the beginning. However, they start with 'o' sounds, whereas words with the other four vowels (such as 'hand', 'herd', 'hint', and 'hunt') all have a voiced 'h'. So why not 'herb'? Also, it's not as though all words starting with 'ho' have a silent 'h' - see 'home' and 'hospital' as examples.

    Do you know of any other lesser-known differences between British and American English?

    Oh and PLEASE say "Probably".....NOT
    'Prolly'.???.. (sounds like something you carry in the rain...)

    Re: How do you say ZRX?

    In da Bronx we say niche just the way its spelt...niche. Actually, we never say niche at all.
    Solder has a silent L even when its of the leadfree variety. Or just say, 50/50 or 95/5.
    Herb has a silent H when its used for basil or thyme butt, When Herb is used short for the mans name, Herbert then you will hear the H. eg. Herbert Hoover not Erbert Oover.

    Funny second side note is people in Chicago think that down state Illinois or Indiana people are hillbillies that can not talk? I worked in that area in the mid 80's and they thought I was a downstate hillbilly.
