Re: Help with French, please--The French pronunciation thread

Sonia, you are a miracle to me! Yes, I think they will mostly be one or two liners. I wonder if the author established her class and credibility by tossing in some obscure French quotes from time to time! hahaha
Thanks so much--such speed, too!
Warmly,
Jan

Re: Help with French, please--The French pronunciation thread

A new chapter, a new French phrase! Oh my.

Here's what I need to pronounce to the best of my ability:

Taille de nymphe, un teint de lys et de rose.

Slowly so I can pronounce phonetically, then swiftly so I know what it should sound like!

Thank you!!

Re: Help with French, please--The French pronunciation thread

Sonia, many, many thanks. This was absolutely perfect! I practiced with your voice for about half an hour, then I taped it and cut and pasted it into my chapter.

Re: Help with French, please--The French pronunciation thread

Help needed with this French phrase!

"Il s'est laisse’ detroner comme un enfant que l’on envoie se coucher."

Thank you so much. Go very slow, syllable by syllable, and then once speaking naturally, please. :-)

I've worked hard to get accurate pronunciations in this one--or at least more accurate.

https://librivox.org/uploads/craigdav1/recollectionsofimperialrussia_03_buchanan_128kb.mp3 Whatever happened to stuck "data" into that last string, it's corrected now. The recording was the same, just (somehow) the name incorrect. Dave, you can spot check this to confirm that it's the same file, if...

Re: [Solo]: Recollections of Imperial Russia by Meriel Buchanan - dc

That "data" in the file name is very strange. I'll go back and look at it again.
Thanks for catching it!

Re: [Solo]: Recollections of Imperial Russia by Meriel Buchanan - dc

I would very sincerely welcome phonetic support on those Russian names. I've been using Linguatec but have not been certain if I should listen to the British English pronunciations (since the author was British) or the Russian pronunciations. I've compared them, however. Certain that I will stumble ...
