Hello Anna san,
Thank you for your message.

OK. I also wait.
In Japan Haiku (17 caracters poetry) is very popular. If somebody post a Haiku, how should we react?

Thank you. If the number approaches 20, I'll ask you.

By the way I recorded one more,

Well, I think there is officially no lower limit to the number of characters in a poem. That's the thing about poems.

But this is one of the reasons why I state the rule that I will not catalogue this project earlier than 4 weeks, since someone can easily record 20 poems in 30 minutes and be done... We sometimes get readers who really like to increase the number of recordings they have done - and just record 10 or 20 very short readings with the sole purpose to get above for example 100 recordings in total...

Hello Masa and Catrose,
I don't know any Welsh... But I think that this book is a collection of poems, right? So this is just one very short poem from that collection. Some poems are very short. Could you please let us know, Cat?
Thanks,
Anna
Yes, it's a book of Welsh Poems for young children. I though I'd start of by reading that because I haven't recorded in Welsh before. I understand that it is incredibly short. Is that a problem. I wasn't planning of posting lots and lots of short, separate Welsh poems, because I could've put lots in a file (as I think you say later on).
Is it ok being that short? If it isn't, there are a few poems in that collection of the same name, so I could group them together.

Don't worry, it's OK as far as I'm concerned, if it's a one-or-two-off. But yes, the first thought I had when I saw it was: oh dear, now we're going to get 101 files of 2 lines each :lol: but that's the careful MC in me... I can see how you want to try out something like that, and that's what the Multilingual Collection is for. If it's OK with Masa as well.

You're welcome. I really enjoyed listening your recordings.
I'm not good at reading aloud and I have an accent...
but I want to do something for this project, so I'll give it a try.
I have to practise a lot.

Kuya Masa,

I came within inches of getting Yabuno naka for our group report... but the other group won it over. Akutagawa san really is a big name, and his stories deserve more slots in this project.

Hello Emerald san,
Welcome to Multilingual project.
You act very quick.
Technical spec for your recording is OK.
Disclaimer is OK.
Just volume is a bit low.
$ mp3gain msw003_shuidiaogetou_su_ew.mp3
msw003_shuidiaogetou_su_ew.mp3
Recommended "Track" dB change: 2.150000
This means 2.15 dB low than the required level (89dB).
But this is acceptable.

Masa
