How is the word `schedule’ pronounced?

The word is pronounced differently depending on which side of the Atlantic you are from. The British pronounce the `sched’ like the word `shed’; the following `ule’ sounds like the word `Yule’. The Americans, on the other hand, pronounce the `sch’ like the `sk’ in `skip’ and `skin’. The `d’ that follows sounds like the `j’ in `jam’ and `jazz’. The final `ule’ rhymes with `cool’ and `pool’. In both cases, the stress is on the first syllable.

Example: Raj was disappointed because nothing went according to schedule.
