https://librivox.org/uploads/craigdav1/recollectionsofimperialrussia-07-buchanan-128kbl.mp3 40.56 This chapter is titled Paul. I realized that I may have put "Paul" in the section title for the metadata for chapter 6 when I repaired the two mispronounced names yesterday. I wonder if it's easier for...

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

Oh yes I definitely want to fix those two! I have wondered if Linguatec is actually a good source for getting these phonetic pronunciations. And it may not have been Linguatec's fault my having added the ya on those two names. Channeling my inner Russian? (My dad looked like Lenin. lol) I'm out of t...

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. I think you MIGHT prefer NOT to hear the final product. lol I don't want to give you any sense of responsibility (or nightmares either). S...

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. :-)
