    Very interesting regional data on some of those. But it's not clear how they do the normalization...

    Yeah, it seems Pakistan is always #1 in everything...

    moving on:

    Ooh, thanks...I guess (?)

    Looks like American English is getting more pervasive than Brit English.

    Look at the relative numbers in Asia and Aurope; it's close even in England and Ireland.

    And strangely, 'minimize' trumps 'minimise' even in England and Ireland. It's only the Aussies and Kiwis that're still holding out !

    PS : They're talking about this right now on the radio (specifically the regional distribution of the 'sex' search).

    Am I missing something here? When I looked at the regional distribution, both the UK and Ireland have more in maximiSe than in maximiZe :confused:
