Hi Leni, Your file sounds great! That's perfect, just continue in the same way. I will watch for that ae character in the future. I wondered if that one phrase was Italian, but I figured you could handle it better than I could, even it if was. Just so you know, if there are only one or two Latin wor...

When someone replies, you can set up your own procedures - and go ahead and use my "km" directory on the server to share files - just be sure they are uniquely named, as there are no subdirectories. I will be editing Section 1 to change the opening blurb and to add Leni's Latin parts in the body of...

Hi Leni, My French is a lot better than my Latin, but overall I think I'd better stick to English! I will acknowledge you as you suggest. I'm guessing Leni rhymes with penny. If not, let me know. I have compiled the Latin phrases from the first four sections. The site won't let me upload a Word file...

I would gladly read the Latin parts; however, I have to warn you that my pronunciation of Latin isn't the English one. I use the "Classic" pronunciation, and even though both (and other!) pronunciations are valid, I think you should be satisfied with whatever pronunciation goes into your solo work....

Thanks for the feedback and encouragement! I think we should get another reader to read the Latin parts. I think that will improve the quality of the work. I will be happy to organize all the texts so that the Latin reader has minimal work. To be clear: I am not discouraged by the book at all, excep...

Here are the texts in the file I just posted: Beneficia eo usque læta sunt dum videntur exsolvi posse; ubi multum antevenere, pro gratia odium redditur. [FOOTNOTE: “Benefits are pleasant while it seems possible to requite them; when they become much greater, they produce hatred rather than gratitude...

Latin

I'm editing my recordings for section II and looking ahead to future sections. To be honest I didn't realize how much Latin was in this book! I never studied Latin, so I've been trying to pronounce it according to a brief guide mentioned on the Librivox Forum. But I'm a little concerned that my undo...

Time: 3:56

Unfortunately I uploaded another file called pensees_intro_pascal.mp3 before I remembered the proper naming convention. Maybe you could find that one and delete it.
