I haven't got much to tell. Usually, where Americans would say 'schedule',
Brits say 'timetable'. I've said 'shedule', trained by my time in S Africa and
my grad school pretensions, but at least twice I've heard 'skedule' here. I
don't know if this is empathetic--they know they're talking to an American,
so they use an American pronunciation--or if the 'k' pronunciation is slipping
in here. I don't recall who said it--but I assume they were southeasterners.
