39. rend/intransitive?? (schism) **
USAGE NOTE The word schism, which was originally spelled scisme in English, is traditionally pronounced (sĭz'∂m). However, in the 16th century the word was respelled with an initial sch in order to conform to its Latin and Greek forms. From this spelling arose the pronunciation (skĭz'∂m). Long regarded as incorrect, it became so common in both British and American English that it gained acceptability as a standard variant. Evidence indicates, however, that it is now the preferred pronunciation, at least in American English. In a recent survey 61 percent of the Usage Panel indicated that they use (skĭz'∂m), while 31 percent said they use (sĭz'∂m). A smaller number, 8 percent, preferred a third pronunciation, (shĭz'∂m).
