    Default Re: deffirence sound

    With 'schedule', some speakers say 'skedule' and other 'shedule', so they are two different pronunciations of the word. Vowels do change when we're talking- we reduce many of them to a small sound like 'uh', so the word does change from the dictionary form when we are talking fast.
