Oh wow, it's old French??? :shock: I thought some of it looked kind of like French, but not quite. Maybe that's what I was seeing?
some poems definitely are OLD French, yes. Some are also Old German ;) but I can deal with that.
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.
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 :lol: I definitely don't want to read such long chapters.

Just post in here whenever someone needs something and I try to record it as soon as I can.

Section 1 is fluently PL OK.
The few non-standard pronunciations do not prevent recognition of the intended word/phrase.
Recording is 100% clear and blemish-free.

well, as devorah and you wrote already, my thoughts were along these lines. yes..

and i' really interested into the running waters (panta rhei) pagan (and hindi) aspects of the king arthur myths.

(and then, i don't know about middle or old english at all, to be honest.)
