Both are correct, I would assume Matthew would be more exposed to "apologize". Apologise is predominant in Great Britain.

As English is the language of England I presume the English way of spelling English is correct.  Those rebel colonists are worse then me at writing.  Tho Isaac Asimov and Philip K Dick were my favourite writers.

Actually, no, you have your derivations wrong: English arose as the language of the Angles, people from Angeln, who later settled in England and gave that godforsaken land its name. The people living in England are no more entitled to claim purity to the language than the speakers of it that live in other parts of the world, who are as much the descendants and heirs of the earliest speakers of it.

As for the spelling of the suffix -ize/-ise, you don't spell it the English way; you spell it the French way (which I think says something more about you, too, but we'll leave that for another day): it comes from the Greek -ιζειν, which became -izāre in Latin and -ize in English.  In the 19th Century, -ise became popular in the UK due to French influence.

Quote from: OED
In mod.F. the suffix has become -iser, alike in words from Greek, as baptiser, évangéliser, organiser, and those formed after them from L., as civiliser, cicatriser, humaniser. Hence, some have used the spelling -ise in Eng., as in French, for all these words, and some prefer -ise in words formed in French or Eng. from L. elements, retaining -ize for those of Gr. composition. But the suffix itself, whatever the element to which it is added, is in its origin the Gr. -ιζειν, L. -izāre; and, as the pronunciation is also with z, there is no reason why in English the special French spelling should be followed, in opposition to that which is at once etymological and phonetic. In this Dictionary the termination is uniformly written -ize. (In the Gr. -ιζ-, the i was short, so originally in L., but the double consonant z (= dz, ts) made the syllable long; when the z became a simple consonant, (-idz) became īz, whence Eng. (-aɪz).)

While -ise may be the more popular English-people way of spelling that suffix, -ize is not a worse English-language way of spelling it.

Also, *though for fuck's sake (what are you, 13?) and *{spelt|spelled} correctly.

OK then yes the Angles helped bring about the name England and English from Angleland and Anglish but the English language deviates from old and middle German like Frisian.  Frisian is the closest foreign language to English.  Everywhere in the world where English is spoken was spread by agents of the king or Queen of England.  So England's English is the oldest and most correct form of the Germanic language of English.  No I'm not thirteen but thirty-two tho I am dyslexic but have studied Fourier Transforms and Matrix Calculus as a student.  So you may laugh at my language skills but at least I can count.

Nice.  I have a complete PKD collection including many first editions, rare doubles, working scripts for Total Recall, etc.  The license plate on my truck is VALIS.

A lot of people do not realize that all of the following, mostly excellent movies are based on his work:

Code:
Blade Runner          - based on "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep"
Total Recall (1990)   - based on "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale"
Screamers             - based on "Second Variety"
Minority Report       - based on "The Minority Report"
Imposter              - based on "Impostor"
Paycheck              - based on "Paycheck"
A Scanner Darkly      - based on "A Scanner Darkly"
Next                  - based on "The Golden Man"
Radio Free Albemuth   - based on "Radio Free Albemuth"
The Adjustment Bureau - based on "Adjustment Team"
Total Recall (2012)   - based again on "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale"

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

No, no, no.  Modern English comes from Middle English, which comes from Old English, which comes from Proto-Germanic, not German.  What you count as a foreign language or as a separate dialect is a political question, not a linguistic one.  See Scots for an example of a debated one that's either a dialect of English or another language.

As for “England's English” being the “oldest,” you could make that argument but not of Modern English English.  The speakers of the oldest variety of English have been dead for more than a millennium and speakers in England are not any closer to ancestral varieties than native speakers elsewhere.  I'm not sure how you conflate oldest with most correct, but English English isn't older.  It's not like a seed was planted in North America and in Oceania that grew up into some new species of English language with some minor mutations that are still understandable.  Any variety of English can be traced back to PIE.

British varieties of English aren't even, generally speaking, conservative.  (An often exaggerated claim is that for that, you need to go to the Ozarks or Appalachia but that's mostly lexical, not grammatical and certainly not orthographic.)

Spread by agents of the king or Queen of England?  (Also, nice capitalization scheme there.)  Nope.  Sorry, but not everyone that departed that isle was an agent of the king.  Most were not.  (Subjects, you could argue until the late 18th Century, but not even that if you count Scots as just a dialect of English (the United Kingdom didn't exist until 1707 and if you count from the union of the crowns (James VI and I), that's 1603, but agents of the man himself rather than agents of the institution would be a much harder claim to support.)

Does it use the grocer's apostrophe, too?
