The swampy town it is! (I'd forgotten that we had a phonetic example, so I tried "slau".)

I use a pronunciation guide that Cori suggested one time: https://howjsay.com/ and their reader offered the possible American pronunciation.

I'm not phonetic literate so I saw slau as in slaughter - which you probably all pronounce differently anyhow, one thing I learnt very early around LV was there is no right way to pronounce anything :D Anne

It's no worry for me, but may be for your PLer.

Thank you.
I see that you have done your 1 minute test, but this appears to be your first recording. What name or psuedonym would you like to be credited as in the catalog, and do you have a webpage or blog you would like have linked with your name?

Section 2 is yours.
