   Z \Z\ (z[emac]; in England commonly, and in America sometimes,
      z[ecr]d; formerly, also, [icr]z"z[ecr]rd)
      Z, the twenty-sixth and last letter of the English alphabet,
      is a vocal consonant. It is taken from the Latin letter Z,
      which came from the Greek alphabet, this having it from a
      Semitic source. The ultimate origin is probably Egyptian.
      Etymologically, it is most closely related to s, y, and j; as
      in glass, glaze; E. yoke, Gr. [?], L. yugum; E. zealous,
      jealous. See Guide to Pronunciation, [sect][sect] 273, 274.
