Hi, Piotrek81--

Here is my Section 02:

47:28

I'm sorry that it has taken me so long to get this chapter to you. I'm DPL'ing lots of projects right now, and so am not finding much time lately to record. But I miss recording, and this is a wonderful novel! There are a number of current projects that I want to participate in--and The Deluge is one of them. Let me finish off a few of my obligations, and I will return here to claim more sections.

I tried to get all of the pronunciations right--but if you find anything hugely wrong that should be corrected, please do let me know. I'll be happy to make any required edits. :)
Best,
Lucretia

Thank you! Please comment on name pronunciation, so that at least I get it right next time!... I think I got a bit confused with the transliteration. Should I have read the j character as z, or as y?...

Yeah, the transliteration in this book can be tricky. "J" in this book corresponds to the sound that English writes down as "zh" (as in Zhukov, this Soviet general :) ). If you know something about French, it's the French "j". I'll listen to it now to confirm.

EDIT: Reading-wise everything is PL OK. Just add about 2 seconds of silence at the end.

Thank you, Piotr! :D

How about the name "Ponyevyej"? I read it as Ponyevyey. Should I read it as Ponyevyezh?
It's a tongue twister! :lol:

I've just checked it with the original version to be sure and it's "Ponyevyezh". Don't worry, if you mispronounce a name, though. It's inevitable that in a group project every name will be pronounced in several ways, especially if it looks unfamiliar ;)
