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'.

I'll have a listen when the section gets posted in the MW. What you did sounds fine to me. The charts and tables are sometimes hard to read.

These were much more fun, thanks.

I'm starting my summer job on Friday, so I'll need to take a week off from recording; if y'all have any chapters left after that, I'll come back and do another one. Cheers!

I'm glad these two sections were better. If there are any left when you have time, that would be great.
Thank you!

Wow, so I guess opening this thing up to group did the trick! I have been gone for a week and I came back to this half done! Thank you so much Amy and Kevin for taking charge of this; it would have died without the both of you. I am trying to work out some schedules so that I can record at least a part of this, but I won't claim one until I can make the time. I am working at weird hours all over the clock right now and I need to finish some other claims in other projects.

I will continue to come in this project each time I can log on to LV.
Regards,
Jason (back) in Canada

Hi Jason,
Kevin and I have been holding the fort. It has been fun. This turned out to be very popular! Hope you get an opportunity to do a section. We may have to launch another 1001 book in the series.
Have a good day!
-Amy :)

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!

Hi kcarp,
That is a difficult situation. You used your best judgement to bring it across. Kevin can give feedback when he proof-listens as to whether it should be revised in any way.
Thanks for working on this one!

Today's turned out busier than I expected. I wanted to have a listen to give some help but that may have to wait until tomorrow. I certainly appreciate your efforts!
