OK, I'm not only an American, I am an Idahoan, lol, so help me out here, Grea. What is the difference in pronunciation between the two? Is the first pronounced with an initial "s" sound and the second with a "z" sound?

I love these discussions of language. My son is studying to be a linguist, and we have discussions about word origins and language usage all the time when he's home. Fascinating stuff!
