Which term do you think is correct?

I have been reading a lot of threads lately, and some people have been saying "acclimatise" or "acclimatization" instead of "acclimate" or "acclimation". Which one do you think is correct?

acclimate is something you do and acclimation is the process of doing it. Never heard the other terms. LOL

Kind of like "irregardless" they're just made up words.

I think it depends on where you come from and how you learned it. It's all the same in the end.
