How would you pronounce "schism"?

Asked by elbanditoroso (15928 points ) May 8th, 2014

I was listening to a radio program on NPR this morning and the speaker talked about “the schism in the Catholic Church”.

He pronounced it “shizm”. (note, he was American, not English)

I’ve always pronounced it “skism” – with a K sound.

What’s correct?
