Hey there, TG!

I'll do #3 - "Part 3 - Discovery..." [pdf 33-44]

Also, I can edit #2 for LaurenceT if that helps at all - seems all it needs is that double-read cut out at 2:40ish and trim head/tail to suit.

Let me know

Section 3 is yours. Thanks!

Section 2 had some missing text as well, so it's not a simple, anyone-can-do-it edit. That's why it's reopened for someone else to record. :)

Oh - I didn't realize that. Okay, I'll do that one too.

The indigenous names are ball-busters! I found a bit of help in the IoT but will do my best on those I can't find.

Also - "sieur Nicolet" would be 'SIGH-YUR' -or 'Sir' Nee-kol-ay, ...?

Just say the indigenous names with authority, and no one will know whether or not you're saying them correctly. :lol: And yes, I'm serious!

"Sieur" is kinda like "Syur" (one syllable). It's the last part of "monsieur". https://forvo.com/word/sieur/#fr

I was pronouncing Nicollet like an Englishman, since I'm used to it that way from its being a street in Minneapolis. ;) If you want to pronounce it the French way, I think it's Nic-oh-LAY.

Splendid - that will make things go faster. And I'll do the English Nicolet so things are consistent.

To the booth!

Sounds like a plan!

How would you like to be credited in the catalog? There are places for a catalog name (some use a nickname or forum name, some their real name) and a personal web site or blog, if you have one. CLICK HERE for an example of what I'm talking about. I recommend using whatever name you say (if any) when you say, "recorded by [your name]" as that's how listeners will look for you. (Keep in mind that prospective employers, classmates, etc. can also find you using the catalog name, so be cautious if privacy might be an issue.)

Here's your catalog page: https://librivox.org/reader/12138
You can keep track of your assigned sections there. (Click on Reader section details to see each section.)

To get to this link yourself, use your name in any Magic Window in which you have an assigned section. Open your name link in a new tab/window (if you click on it directly, it opens right in the Magic Window). ;)

Suggestions for a newbie? In general, do the 1-minute test to iron out your largest recording wrinkles, and ask questions. No question is stupid. :) For this project, the sentence structures can be a little strange. Often in some of these old works, they put commas were we wouldn't today and leave them out of places where we would put them. :lol: So if you realize you're reading it with the wrong intonation or whatever, don't stress too much about it, but repeat the sentence the way you think it should be read.

As for name pronunciations, do the best you can. "M." is "monsieur". I had pronounced "de la Salle" like, well, "de la SAL" ("Sally" without the last syllable). I think the hardest ones are the Native American names, in which case I tried to do them pretty much phonetically in my recordings.

Hope this helps!

From the first post:
4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://archive.org/details/cihm_42407

The page numbers in the Magic Window for each section correspond to the pages of the PDF.
