Colloquia Familiaria by Desiderius Erasmus (1466 - 1536).

This collection of Latin dialogues, first published published in 1518 but gradually expanded until 1533, is among the most pleasant reading in the language for students and experts alike. Useful phrases, interesting narratives, humorous character sketches, and social criticism are all to be found here, written in a style rarely matched and prompting the 18th-century translator Nathan Bailey to praise Erasmus "as well for the Usefulness of the Matter of his Colloquies, as the Pleasantness of Style, and Elegancy of the Latin." (Summary by Felipe Vogel)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.stoa.org/hopper/toc.jsp?doc=Stoa:text:2003.02.0006:colloquium=preface
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hello, Ann

So, today,I finally had the time to start taking a look here. I started filling in the rest of the MW and decided to get a short section to see how long it would take me preparing the text and all that. So section 9 is uploaded. Please let me know what you think.

I am not trying to keep track of all long and short vowels in the text - unfortunately I am not able to do it naturally, and it would be a huge effort of preparation to mark all of them - but I am trying to make clear when they are distinctive. And I am being careful so that the stressed syllable is correctly produced. If you notice any wrong stresses, please do let me know.

I will check Felipe's sections as well soon. :)

I am just smiling away listening to your section! I love the classic pronunciations, and I am fine with you not trying to make sure the long and short vowels are where they should be. Your pronunciations sounded natural, which I think is more important that being exactly correct. Section 9 is PL OK!

Thanks, Ann! I can't NOT use the classical pronunciation - too used to it to do it any different! I will try and record some more for this project this weekend.

Hi, Ann

I have recorded two more sections here and I found some typoes in the text linked in te first post. Some I coud make an educated guess on, but some I couldn't, so I ended up looking for another source. I am checking against this text here, which is the only one I could find that has all the colloquies I needed so far: https://www.deutsche-digitale-bibliothek.de/item/FB43GROHYK76HXMLP6LTX7NNGDTCFDNL I just wanted to put the link here so you know (and I know). :mrgreen: I should edit the sections soon.

Thanks, Ann! Sorry I am recording this kind of in a haphazard order, I am kind of picking and choosing. I have recorded the (long) preface though, should be up soon.

That's fine with me, you don't have to go in order! It usually takes me a little longer to get to the Latin PL'ing because I have to follow the text. The English ones I listen to while doing other things!

And here is the quite long preface. Took me a while to edit it all.

The preface is PL OK! Do you want me to PL the other sections that Felipe recorded?

Thanks, Ann! I can hardy believe I didn't miss any edits on the preface. :shock: Feeling victorious :clap: lol It was hard. Thanks for your PLing and patience.

I planned on listening myself, but haven't found the time. If you want and have the time to do it, please go ahead. But only if you can, really. Otherwise I will do it at some point. :mrgreen:
