1001 questions and answers on English grammar. by Benjamin Hathaway (1822 - 1896).


A book for students interested in finding out how many things about the English language have changed, and how many have weathered the test of time. ( jasonb)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uiug.30112056432740&view=1up&seq=1
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!


    Magic Window:



    BC Admin ===========================================
  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of 1001 questions and answers on English grammar.. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "1001 questions and answers on English grammar., by Benjamin Hathaway. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of 1001 questions and answers on English grammar. by Benjamin Hathaway. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of 1001 questions and answers on English grammar., by Benjamin Hathaway. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
  • Example filename 1001grammar_##_hathaway_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. 1001grammar_01_hathaway_128kb.mp3)



    Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader Image
      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    • You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: alg1001

I thought you might! This was inspired by your post in Book Suggestions, then I saw that KevinS had started one, so I thought to continue.

Yes, of course! I would be glad to have you. I even have some questions that I will be asking for some input on how to read certain questions in the text that I have seen while trying to finish the MW.

As you have already led one of these projects, do you have any suggestions about reading? I did listen to a few minutes of several segments in your project to get some ideas.

I think you'll enjoy this project a good deal, though it does have its challenges. I've read ahead and see that your reading will benefit from some planning. Most of the text is straight forward enough, with a simple question and answer format, but, later, you'll see that the answers become more problematic. I don't think one should try to read the sentence diagrams, for instance. The good news there is that the text just below them seems clear enough. And there are some cases where words will have to be read and then spelled out when the meaning would be lost without the listener being given an idea of its unique spelling or the use of apostrophes and the like.

I think you'll have a lot of fun.
