Chapter 6 is PL OK.

I see what you mean about the names. I think I've heard some of them on daytime television: "Ask your doctor if Komodoflorensal is right for you. Do not take Komodoflorensal if you are also taking Trohanadalmakus or Veltopishago."

Modern authors can use cut-and-paste to spell their weird names the same every time - Burroughs must have had to do that by hand.

Excellent job with the names by the way.

I'm going to save Chapter 7 for a few hours; time for a nap.

Chapter 7 is PL OK. Well read.

Edgar Rice Burroughs stories often feature armies of 10s of thousands.

"After the dazzle of day is gone,
Only the dark, dark night shows to my eyes the stars;
After the clangor of organ majestic, or chorus, or perfect band,
Silent, athwart my soul, moves the symphony true."

Chapter 8 PL OK.

Chapter 9 - t ~15:36 I hear "he loses 1000 slaves to-to Dalfastomalo." I'll mark this PL OK, but you might want to take a listen there to see if you want to clean that spot up.

Ok, thanks - that was an edit spot, so I will check it out and see if I can make it a little cleaner.

I suspected an edit there.
By the way, how many tries does it take you to get those character and village names? (They're nice and consistent in your edited chapters. I can't get through a word with so many syllables without tripping over my tongue.)

In the latest chapter, several tries on a few. I can never get Zertalacolol right... One instance took five or six tries, with rehearsal in between. :?

I cleaned up that spot, if you don't mind giving it a quick spot-check.

Chapter 11 is PL OK.
I'm pretty sure Caraftap will not manage to kill Tarzan in chapter 12 - or in any future chapter.

Congratulations! Tarzan and the Ant Men is 50% complete.
