    Red face Schedule

    Dear Teacher,

    I am pronouncing the word "Schedule" as "shed u l". But some pronounce as "Ske" skelaton and "d ul" i.e "ske d ul".

    Please clarify as to how to pronounce "Schedule".

    Thanking you,

    Murli

    In the U.S., it's pronounced "sked-jule." But I believe that Left Ponders ( ) say "shed-ule."

    hi

    by your name i feel even you are a Indian.
    so how it is pronounced here is

    she du le

    she as "she"r (tiger) in hindi

    du as "due"t

    le as k"al " (yesterday/tmrw) in hindi.

    hope you got me. i cross my fingers about your nationality....since i have explained it in hindi...

    Murli,

    As Ouisch mentioned, the American pronunciation is
    "sked-jule" (ske-jool). The British and Indian pronunciation is
    "she-dule".

    What confuses some people in America is when Indians
    mix it up and say - "ske-dule" (First part from
    the American pronunciation and the second part from
    the British one.)

    No, sorry to confuse you. England is considered to be on the left side of the "pond," or the Atlantic Ocean.
