MInister's Moment: Divided by a common language
Divided by a Common Language
Winston Churchill once said that the United States and England were “two nations divided by a common language.” Even though both countries speak English, Americans’ version of the language is not the same as that of our British cousins. There are vast differences in both word usage and pronunciation. During World War II, General Eisenhower (American) and Field Marshall Montgomery (English) were having a conversation in which Eisenhower used the word “schedule.” Montgomery corrected his pronunciation, saying “It’s shedule! [phonetic spelling] Where did you ever learn to say ‘skedule’?” Eisenhower replied, “In shool.”
