some poems definitely are OLD French, yes. Some are also Old German but I can deal with that.
yes it's as the reader wishes really. If they want to copy the pronunciation I can give them the sample, if they prefer me to do it, I can clean it up better for public use. As long as I only have to do the poems I definitely don't want to read such long chapters.EDIT: Would you be willing to have your recording inserted into someone else's chapter? Maybe with a voice credit at the beginning of the chapter: "French and German portions read by Sonia"? I, for one, wouldn't want to try to copy someone else's pronunciation for a long segment like that, although I don't mind it for a phrase or sentence.
Just post in here whenever someone needs something and I try to record it as soon as I can.
