10 sounds much better. Good job getting rid of the distortion. 11 also sounds good. PL OK all the way.

And Lucretia,

If the answer to my last question is yes, could you please direct me as to how you'd like me to read foreign proper nouns? I really don't like the idea of intentionally pronouncing every single name incorrectly for the sake of sounding English :p I'm happy to read French things like a French person and Italian things (sort of) like an Italian person. For some examples:

- "Henry IV": Read as "Henry the Fourth" or "Henri-Quatre"?
- "Paris": Read in the English or French style? (Some of the other place names, I would suggest, should definitely be read as if they were being read by a French person.)
- "Mary de Medici": "Mary" is written in the English style (or possibly old French or Italian? I know that "roi" used to be written "roy" in French...), the "de" is French but nearly Italian, and the "Medici" is Italian. So am I to pronounce this as schizophrenically as it is written?

Do please let me know if you have any thoughts.

Thanks beaucoup.

Ali
