CRYSTAL CLEAR!

We're just back from a relaxing holiday, during which I had
the opportunity to consult a copy of the latest larger OED. I think it's the
same version Susie Dent uses on Countdown. (Ah, I've revealed another guilty
secret, haven't I?)

The spelling of 'crystallized' is definitively given WITH
THE Z. The alternative 'crystallised' is only shown as an afterthought in
brackets.

I feel totally vindicated!
