Thank you
Just one thing: in future, please follow the file naming format in the first post... we do need to have them standardized. Don't worry this time -- I can change it, but if there are edits, please use the correct file name.

Argh. My sincererest apologies. Last time I forgot the time length. Perhaps third time’s a charm? I appreciate you changing that for me.

Hi Lynne-

I found a bit in my section that I am uncertain how to handle. In several spots, "Gy--y" appears. I am not sure what that is. It may be a name, but I think it is some sort of exclamation, perhaps an off color one with several letters dropped to be less offensive to sensitive eyes. I looked a bit on the internet, but didn't find anything useful. Putting it into a Russian pronunciation program just gave a pronunciation for the individual letters (I think :) ). I guess I'm leaning towards doing that unless someone can point me in a more proper direction. You know any Russian speakers who may be able to interpret this?

It's an imitation of a chuckle. I am not sure how to write it in letters so you'd pronounce it well, and I lack the tools to record it now (at work). The consonant is not as hard as "G", so it's like 'Gh', and the vowel is like 'ee', but harder. A petite Japanese woman would make a 'hee-hee' sound. Imagine its analog coming from "the stoutest of the sportsmen"...

Ah, I was hoping you'd jump in Tovarisch. That maybe what I am hearing on this web site -
https://www.howtopronounce.com/russian/gy-y/
I will give it a try. I'm unlikely to get it correct, but at least I know what I'm trying to say. :D

Благодарю вас!

Lynne-

Here is section 14-

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/cho ... _128kb.mp3
Track length: 15:40

Thanks to Tovarisch for his help. :thumbs: Not sure I was able to chuckle in Russian though.

:help: I am going to be out of commission from next Sunday on and unable to record for a while. It would be great to get a PL fairly quickly so I can make any necessary corrections before then.
