So I was writing a document for a piece of coursework and I started to struggle for the right words when I found this:
- You can spell 'maximise' as opposed to 'maximize'.
- The word 'maximalize' exists, and is rarely spelt 'Maximalise'.
- You cannot spell 'minimalise' instead of 'minimalize'.
- 'Minimize' and 'minimise' are there too, relative to 'maximize' and 'maximise'.
And so, I was wondering which is the 'more correct' way of expressing something to be made minimal / maximal, and what difference does using Z's instead of S's make?
I have searched all of these and it seems very debatable, sometimes some of these words are corrected and other times they are not.
