    Schedule a new event. The *time* argument should be a numeric type compatible
    with the return value of the *timefunc* function passed  to the constructor.
    *priority*.
 
    Executing the event means executing ``action(*argument, **kwargs)``.
-   *argument* must be a sequence holding the parameters for *action*.
-   *kwargs* must be a dictionary holding the keyword parameters for *action*.
+   Optional *argument* argument must be a sequence holding the parameters
+   for *action* if any used.
+   Optional *kwargs* argument must be a dictionary holding the keyword
+   parameters for *action* if any used.
 
    Return value is an event which may be used for later cancellation of the event
    (see :meth:`cancel`).
       *kwargs* parameter was added.
