We all say school as sk-ool, and schooner as sk-ooner. Which was how I and many others were taught at school!
However, I have noticed that many people who pronounce these words properly don’t carry it on through the sch (sk) words.
I was taught that sch was pronounced as sk. As in school, schooner, schedule, and yet so many people decide to change the English language and pronounce it as shed-ule.
It is NOT shed-ule, IT IS SKED-ULE!
Seriously people, if you use the sk sound on school and schooner use it on schedule as well, don’t change it. I hate it!
And this is just like the “H” debate I had years ago when it comes to the English language!
