Many of the "tendencies" mentioned are not tendencies at all, but normal figures being in use for decades.
And here are my 50 cents from my communication with British partners:
Thanks for your additions. What I meant by the word 'tendencies' is that it's common now to frequently use words with the suffix -ize / -ify, etc. These words are becoming 'buzzwords', e. g. to synergize, maximize, etc.
