Just listening with delight to chapter four, and caught two phrases repeated and a mispronunciation:

7:40 minutes ... "I know I am quite right"
21:35 ... She rather wanted the place..."
22:10 table d'hote - (aspirated h)

Please accept this in the friendly and, I hope helpful, spirit in which it's meant. I mention the above knowing If it were my recording I'd want to know.

🙃
Thanks... but we don't comment on pronunciation. There are too many different ways of saying things ("You say tomaytoe, I say tomahto...")
I've just seen these. I wasn't sure whether you want me to make the edits but I've gone ahead and cut the repeats. It was an interesting exercise and I now better appreciate the wiki's statement that people quickly learn to edit from back to front. :-)

I do appreciate the heads up on 'table d'hote' but I've left that as is on the basis that a slight mispronunciation is not that important (and i'm telling myself that Seymour speaks as little French as I do) and rerecording sections is a bit of a faff on my setup (and conditions are not particularly conducive to recording at the moment). If you feel it should be fixed I can have another go at it.

Thanks. That should be fine.

I'm just about to upload chapter 6.

I'd like to claim chapter 11 and 12, okay?

Seeing your explanation mark, I am emboldened to ask:

Can I also claim chapter 10?

This is a fun project.
