"The memorial service is schedule to start around 10:00."

Is the above correct? Isn't it suppose to be "is scheduled to"? as a passive form [be + verb-ed] ??

If the above sentence is correct, then what's the part of speech of "schedule"??

"is schedule to" is wrong. As you say, it should be "is scheduled to".

You are correct. This is an agentless passive construction. An unnamed person scheduled the memorial service. Therefore, in passive voice " the service is scheduled ...."

I know you're right, and I know Internet isn't always a credible source,

but i found this usage on "The Wall Street Journal", so please, just reassure me that it's wrong when used in writing, in speaking...do ppl speak like that?


"Lieberman isn’t the only household name on the program. Gary Bauer, a former presidential candidate and a prominent conservative, is a member of the Christian United for Israel board and is schedule to appear during the four-day summit."

Even respected publications such as the The Wall Street Journal can make the occasional typo, and that's what this is. Someone's finger just slipped on the keyboard and no one spotted it. No native speaker would ever intentionally use this form of wording, either in writing or in speech.

(Incidentally, there seems to be another mistake in the same sentence. According to their website, the correct title of the organisation is "Christians United for Israel". But there are a surprising number of Google hits for "Christian United for Israel", so maybe it's a common alternative form.)
