Oh yes, they would have fit perfectly into this month's theme of "Nerds and Geeks" as well... :wink:

thanks for your files MaryAnn!
Cheers,
Ava.

Ava,
May I claim 14, 15 and 20? Those will seem short after Staunton - except the bit of French in 20 is a bit daunting. Good thing I have an on-line French pronunciation guide bookmarked! :mrgreen:

Dread,
Go easy on the Latin in the Staunton letters please - I couldn't always remember which syllable to accent and just tried to speak like I knew what I was saying . . . :roll:

MaryAnn

Section 09 has almost nothing wrong, except for the following:

7:53
Used moments for months
"If Mr. Staunton can steal a few months from business"

Everything else is stellar! :thumbs:

I will be gentle, esp. since I too have trouble with Latin pronunciation.

Section 10 is nearly perfect. I found your Latin exemplary.

Just one little problem.

15:10
Used proposed for postponed
"had continually postponed the commencement"

Here are editing notes for Section 04.

33.3 (seconds)
Should add Part 1 after Chapter 4

11:32
Used sport for spot
"that classic spot is to be regarded"

(One could argue that spot is a typo, but it seems that focus here is on the place, not the game.)
