I don't know how I missed that on my PL. :oops: Fixed now.

Here is the recording for Section 6, Adjectives:
https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/1001grammar_06_hathaway_128kb.mp3

Recording length: 18.28

Just a note for the PL. At approximately 12:20, there is a table featured in the book that when read aloud exactly as it appears in the text is very unclear for the listener. To aid in comprehension, I have added a sentence trying to keep with the original style. This section starts with 'section 46' and the sentence I have added is 'first we will give the positive degree, then the comparative degree and then the superlative degree'.
Verity, you have done a marvelous job with this reading. (And reminded me of how much grammar I have forgotten!) PL OK!

I might add, however, that your recording would benefit from the use of the compressor effect. I don't know if that will lessen the plosives that sometimes appear, but your volume (as seen in the 'spikes' in the visual representation of your recording) often stretches to the outer limits of the graph.

Section 5. That was a chore, heh.

I did my best with spelling out the words that needed spelling; if there are others that need it, let me know and I'll edit them in. Checker said it was too quiet so I amplified it, but it may have some clipping; I think it won't matter? But I'll wait for the PL to decide. Thanks!

(Also there are some pretty archaic words in here, especially with the gendered nouns...)
There is one spot that has a slight stumble that perhaps should be fixed. It's found at 33:42.

I'm not quite sure what to do about some of the pronunciations, especially---and maybe only---the possessive plurals. I'll have to listen again with the text in front of me.

Here is section 14 - syntax! I took some liberties with the diagrams (#64, #66-74) in an attempt to convey the visual information through spoken word (which was kind of a struggle to figure out). Reading #64 verbatim seems like it would be way too confusing for the listener, especially with needing to distinguish between roman/arabic numerals and uppercase/lowercase letters. As for #66-74, I could just not attempt to "read" the diagram and only read the description underneath, but figured showing the ties/braces/bars/etc would be useful. But please let me know if there is a different way that I should do it!

Here's section 15! Easier than the syntax one for sure, though I'm still wondering if I could have made question #14 make a little more sense when read aloud...

Section 12 7:47

https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/1001grammar_12_hathaway_128kb.mp3

This was a surprisingly political grammar lesson.

I read this entire section as written. But like other chapters, I wonder if the listener might get lost with all the numbers with no labels.

Political? This will be interesting!
