MaryAnne,
For now do you think it would be best to remove the sticky from the listeners wanted? viewtopic.php?f=21&t=73988
Done!
M.A.

PL for chapter 4:
0:30 Raskolnikov line TEXT: Mr. Luzhin be damned! AUDIO: The name Luzhin pronounced as Lurin, same around 2:25, 3:49, 4:26, 6:26, 7:08, 8:08, 8:49, 9:27, 11:37, 12:02
Raskolnikov line TEXT "Dounia" pronounced as "Donia" throughout (will add timestamps tomorrow if you want).
4:43 Raskolnikov live TEXT: Pay for you tabacco AUDIO: Pay for you OWN tabacco.
6:07 Raskolnikov live TEXT: Afanasy Ivanovitch AUDIO: Afanasy IVAN Ivanovitch
8:59 Raskolnikov live TEXT: Yes, there is no denying AUDIO: Yet there is no deying
10:36 Raskolnikov live TEXT: Radion AUDIO: Rodion
Perhaps I should just start over and re-record the whole part. Apparently I screwed up three of the names in my pronunciation chart (and counting), and i can't see any other way. "Lurin" and "Donia" were the notes that I had on those names.

I'm sorry I've been away for so long. I got really sick but I'm back home and will be getting caught up here over the weekend.

MaryAnn,
What do you think of name pronunciation in DRs? I don't correct for pronunciation, since that is standard PL policy, but maybe for DR's it's more picky. The pronunciation is consistent throughout the role.

This role is really big and I wouldn't want to promote recording again without input.

Well,

The first post says:
BC and Narrator: HoosierMary
DPL: carteki and HoosierMary
Editor: Kristingj (after 2016) and HoosierMary (until then)

We have a pronunciation guide kindly provided by tovarisch. Please consult it for your character's name and any others you say so that we may keep name pronunciations consistent.

Names are recorded in alphabetical order to help you more easily find the one you're looking for. In cases where a character's last name is known, the name is alphabetized by the last name. All others are listed by first name. Note that a patronymic (ie Ivanovna, Petrovitch, etc) is not a last name. Here is the list of names included in the pronunciation guide:

karlkuzmich and Tovarisch have kindly offered to answer any questions regarding name pronunciation.
That said, I know that for myself, I will never be able to pronounce a Russian name/word like a native speaker, so the pronunciation guide is a help, but as long as it is close to what's in the pronunciation guide and consistent, I would personally let it go.

We are on year 4 of this project and Russian names are difficult . . .

MaryAnn

Thank you. I'm just returning from hospital duty. All went well but I'm tired. I'll get back in the swing of things soon.
