I think everyone here might find this interesting:

We’ve found the top words that have a different British vs American pronunciation. We always Like to think that English comes from England, and that the British pronunciation is therefore correct, but you might be surprised when you check through our list – you migh even be using the American version of the word in your enery day converstions.

Read It Here!

I’d love to know what you think of it.

Thanks

Thought you’re lying.   But I checked the audio of the dictionary.   Sure enough.

The ‘herb’ distinction reminded me of this Waywordradio topic.

The British pronunciation given for “schedule” (SHED-ual) is a little bit off, though! Should really be SHED-yool (IPA: ‘??dju?l).
