I wasn't sure about the pronunciation of Ta Mahinna in the end of the third verse of "Bitter Sweet." It didn't seem to fit the rhyming pattern unless the "a" at the end is silent, but I read it as written. Let me know if you have any insight.

To be honest, Larry, I'm not sure myself. It's not Australian Aboriginal, I don't think it's Maori, it's possible it's something from the South Pacific, or it may just be an invention.

Best just to go with the flow, I think.

Queued for PL.

Thanks,
Chris

Hi I would like to read sections 0 & 1 Preface & Horses of the Hills.

I've done my one minute test, do you need the results as well, or do I need to post the recording here? (noob) :hmm:

I've finished one! (yay) but I have no idea if this is labeled correctly or where to go from here. I'd greatly appreciate any assistance! :)
