Ok, thanks. I would enjoy recording it without having to scan it! That is a lot of work! I presume the texts are exactly the same.

Yes. It's a bit of a pain to verify that for PG, but still a lot easier than scanning and proofing a new edition.

Not sure where to pose this question, but I'll post here and in Pronunciation.

I am wondering how to pronounce the main character's name, Alveric.

It's not a common name that comes up in an online pronunciation guide. Irish or British, I can't tell. All that really matters is if the accent falls on the first syllable, or the second.

That's a hard one to answer. Does the character seem to come from a particular literary tradition? I'm only guess, mind, but a German tradition might place the accent on the first syllable while the French would be the second. (If only his name were Alvericus!)
7 Dec: I have lost my voice. (Can you believe it?!) I'll still be PLing, however, so lay it on.
