Stupid fucking question but the word "derivatisation" is spelt as I have written it in English (UK) and it is not spelt "derivatization" which is the American spelling? Am I right or not? Every god damn paper I have read with this word spells it with the "z", even if they are researchers from Britain.... So, I really need to know because I want to actually spell it right. Every alarm bell in my head is going crazy saying it is "-isation" and not "-ization."

Ive been up so long writing a research proposal that nothing makes sense anymore.

Edit:

The definition of the word is to change the structure of a compound via a functional group to a structurally similar compound.

Maybe you brits should stop using American made spellcheck?

You, good sir, have not gone over to your friends house after a hard night of drinking to find 2 dudes passed out in the same room both holding their own flaccid cocks in hand, passed out, with porn on the tv.

Spell it with an "s" for English, and a "z" for American.
An Augmented 4th or a Diminished 5th?

Language is set to UK spelling, but it does not recognise it in either US or UK spelling, and its not in the dictionary that I have... Eh, I'll spell it with the s and if I get told off, I will tell them to shove it.

Or I will be a good boy and do as Im told...

If you get told off, hide an angry cougar in their car.

Assuming you're talking about the chemistry-related term, it's a Z. Scientific nomenclature stands outside standard region defined spellings in order to ensure clarity within scientific documents.

... That could work. Or being a chemist, I could rig explosives in their office that when they sit on their chair, will release a cloud of fine particles of viagra, giving them the most horrendous boner all day... It will cause pain.

Lots of pain.

And embarrassment.

But mostly, pain.

Use S instead of Z and dont drop any Us to keep it British.

Also, spell the colour grey with an E, not an A
