August 17, 2014 - Word of the Day: schedule

 

A person uses a schedule in order to know when something is planned for the future. A schedule is followed or it's created. Time for an event, an appointment, or a regular, on-going activity might be put on a calendar, or a person simply remembers where and when to go somewhere.

Here it is as a verb:

  • Beatrice scheduled an appointment with the doctor for next week.
  • I was scheduled to work on Sunday, but then I asked for that day off.
  • They won't be scheduling any more early morning meetings because it's too hard for everyone to get there on time.
  • I'm scheduling appointments to meet with students next week.

The word "schedule" is frequently used as a noun:

  • If you want to find out what time the game starts, it's on the schedule.
  • Binti checked the bus schedule to see what time the bus would arrive.
  • Don't fall behind schedule.
  • Try to keep track of your schedule.
  • I'll have to put that on my schedule.
  • The flight isn't on schedule. It will be here an hour late.
  • If you need more volunteers for Friday, you can put my name on the schedule.

One interesting note: The word "schedule" is a good example of a difference between British and American pronunciation of some words. The British pronunciation of this word is "schedule" (shedule) with an "sh" sound-not an "sk" sound. Isn't that interesting?

schedule

I'll have to put that on my schedule.
