Another comparable word debate, so which is it? Cognisant or Cognizant, which one is correct?
These things are the matter of much discussion on the web, and generally you can find a reasonable trail for which variation of any similarly comparable words came first. Generally splitting from origins with American's using a "Z" and UK speakers preferring an "S".
However when writing a formal assessment recently I found the conversations about which out of Cognisant or Cognizant was the proper way to spell it out as an English speaker was much more confusing. Many Brits were siding with the "Z" and a similar amount of American's were siding with the "S".
So with unresolved spelling foremost in my mind I consulted the oracle of English. Dictionary Corner's (Countdown) Susie Dent.
