Hahah! You're too kind!Jmbau13 wrote: ↑January 3rd, 2020, 7:11 pmI am not surprised - you really copped a mouthful with all the various names, languages and their pronunciations, not to mention the archaic language! I think overall you did a fine job with a difficult chapter.KevinS wrote: ↑January 2nd, 2020, 9:13 pmSection 17
A tiny bit uncertain of some of the pronunciations.
Need to fix:
~ 6.20 You have read Louis instead of Louise as the text says; this does change the meaning (ie, the gender of the person)
~8.19 the faculty negatived (you read negativised)
~ 11.30 ... untrammelled study of nature (I heard untrampled)
~ 13.35 pronunciation of Hippocrates, as he is so central to the whole topic. There's some useful examples of how to say it here: https://youglish.com/pronounce/hippocrates/english/us?
FYI only (I know you like to know, and your choice if you alter or not), these ones I can help with:
- Rabelais is French, so the final 'lais' is most properly said as 'lay' ie, doesn't sound the 's'
- physiognomy has a silent 'g'
- Cecco (in Cecco d'Ascoli) is said as 'Check-oh', ie, 'ch' to start, not the soft s sound.
I'll try to get all it cleaned up.
I was confused about Louise. I recorded both versions---male [sic] and female---but later thought the text refer to this person as a man.
I have never heard 'negatived' in my whole life! (Does this mean 'negated'?)
I knew about Cecco. I don't know where my 'secco' came from. Thirst?
Etc. Blah, blah. Why am I defending myself? Hahaha!
