Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

As it happens zzz and zzzs are both valid in Scrabble in the UK, which is why I looked up this page. Mglovesfun 12:43, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

It seems that this word is the last in the Wiktionary, and in fact in any dictionary I've ever seen. Does "Zzz" qualify as the last word in the English language, alphabetically? 76.190.157.141 23:54, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

"Zzz" comes before "zzz" in Wiktionary. "zzzs" comes after "zzz" in Wiktionary. DCDuring TALK 00:35, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Snoring sound?[edit]

Isn't it supposed to represent the sound of snoring? If so, that would be a better definition than merely saying that it indicates sleep. 86.131.102.228 23:03, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

  • I think it is, yes. Related question - how do you pronounce 'zzz' and how can that possibly sound like snoring anyway? CiaranG 11:25, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
Although it represents the sound of snoring, it is not spelt phonetically. So I think you can 'pronounce' it in anyway you like. Conrad.Irwin 11:32, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
