Brasilianisation? or Brazilianization? Or this bizarre (sorry, bisarre) hybrid?

jopolho commented on the word brazilianisation
I know Brasilianisation and Brazilianization. I think the most correct is Brazilianization. Because we are speaking of the country Brazil (in English). Brasil with "s" is the Portuguese word for the country, my country, inclusive.
bilby commented on the word brazilianisation
British English prefers the spelling -ise (and -isation) to the American -ize (-ization), hence Brazilianisation is quite regular from a BE point of view.
Prolagus commented on the word brazilianisation
I think so, since Brazil is Brazil is Brazil (USA/UK/Oz).
rolig commented on the word brazilianisation
Old-fashioned Oxford University Press prefers the etymologically grounded -ize/-ization (not an Americanism, but in use since the 16th century) to the French-influenced -ise spellings.
Search results give me more hits for Brazilianisation than Brazilianization for whatever that's worth.
Gee. I was just making a joke...
