Yes, quite an interesting chapter! I have never been to Santarém myself, nor to Tomar. I hope to be able to go back to Portugal at some point to visit more sites there, I absolutely love Portugal, but all my trips there have been to the coast! :hmm:
yes Algarve is pretty too, although I'm not a beach person. :lol:
Section 128 coming soon and, while I am at it, could I claim section 127 as well?
yes thank you, I'll sign you up

no hurry, I'll be offline till Saturday, so no PLing before then.

May I request sections 101 and 107?
hi Adam :) I remember you from the one-minute test I checked. Thanks for joining this project. :D I'll sign you up for 101 and 107. All the details for the long disclaimer and how to say the title and how to name the file are found in the first post.

Have fun !

Sonia

Hello Sonia,
I seem to have been on a recording spree today so above are "Portugal" sections.
One left for me to record with my selections for this thread and that is not happening today.
Enjoy your day!!

I'm back, sorry for the delay in answering. Yes, Lynda, thanks, I'll sign you up for those two.

@April: thank you for the many sections :shock: I will try to reduce my backlog PL jobs over the weekend.

indeed you have been highly prolific while I was away, April. Great job on the Spanish and Portuguese sections on the whole. :thumbs: Some very interesting chapters, which I really liked.

Sections 115, 119, 125 and 131 can all be marked PL ok right away.

A few notes for the other 3 sections though:

Section 114:
> at 1:48: (p. 518): "father of Alfonso the XIII" - you say "eighth" but it's the "thirteenth"

Section 116:
> at 2:01: (p. 523): part of the sentence is missing: "and the royal garments were given him after their owner had done with them"
> at 7:45: (p. 526): stumble and repeat: "his shoes were of as fine leather as that whereof gloves are made" - can easily be cut a bit neater
> from 9:52-9:55: the pause seems a bit too long before the end disclaimer, you could cut it down to 1.5 seconds maybe

Section 121:
> at 1:28: (p. 562) "he cast himself at the feet of Gregory IX" - you said "sixth" here, but you have the correct sentence right behind, so you can cut this part with the error (1:28-1:31)
> at 4:09: (p. 563/564): "the psalm Miserere me, Deus" - I hear "palm misery me de", it's "psalm" (pronounced /salm/ without 'p') and /de-us/ at the end

thanks !

Section 78 - Eighteenth Brumaire

hah ! this was a short a how-to manual for aspiring tyrants and dictators :lol: Great job again, Alan, thank you so much. Of course PL ok. This revolutionary calendar was quite something. Imagine we'd all be in Nivôse right now.

I think it is a shame we never adopted the revolutionary calendar. Names like Nivose, Brumaire and Thermidor are so poetic.

Oh my Sonia,
I thought that they were interesting chapters as well.
I had thought I did better than I actually did. Seriously, those are fixable errors and since I have printed this section out I will repost when they are fixed, hoping for tomorrow. Thank you.
April
