Re: [POLISH] Siedem wybranych opowiadań by Władysław Orkan -

Whenever I need the codes, I do a google search for "html diacritics" or "html accents" or some such (Spanish ones I can do without reference, but anything fancier than that, I need help :)). This time, I came across this page which, very helpfully, had a list of specifically Polish diacritics. Oh,...

Re: [POLISH] Siedem wybranych opowiadań by Władysław Orkan -

In preparation for cataloging, I replaced all the letters with diacritics with their html code equivalents.

At last! Finished recording the last two stories. Some parts are written in such thick dialect (Tatra mountains) that my tongue was slipping and twisting - but it was fun. Also the introduction is now complete.

Re: A Russian poetry project, anyone?

Again, I'm a newcomer, where should I start :?: --Mark Hi, Mark I'd suggest starting by reading the LibriVox wiki pages: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Main_Page then recording the 1 minute test.

Re: A Russian poetry project, anyone?

Welcome to LibriVox, Mark (or Karl? which do you prefer?). Yes, Gutenberg is often under-represented in other than English languages, but considering it is put together entirely by volunteers it is still an impressive and fantastic resource. I've been sourcing my Polish readings from Wikisource, and...

Re: Foreign Languages

Recently, I've been thinking- does having Polish as a native language help with Russian? I know that the grammar is similar (cases, perfective/imperfective verbs and all that) but what about other aspects of the language? Yes, you are right, it helps with the grammar, also with pronunciation, all t...
