Slarven rather than Slaven [Bilic].

Someone in particular used to say this, much to my annoyance.

My English teacher at school always used to tell us off for our bad pronounciation. Oh, how we laughed.

GCRO - I know it's the American way, but I do say skedule because I think it sounds better. Kill me.

I'm a /skedju:l/ man as well. That's one more on GCRO's kill list. Xander has it right.
