Please don't take the mw as an indication. I am blind and need more assistants with it. So sometimes things are a bit slow. The indication should be that I thanked you for the file. That means I recieved it.

Hello Nila,
I've had a chance to PL both Chapters 12 and 30. Notes for Chapter 12 will come first and I'll post another entry for Chapter 30. As you gain more experience in recording and editing, notes will become fewer, so please don't be put off by the details I've listed. I've tried to be as specific as possible, with the end goal of producing a pleasing and accurate recording. Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for being a contributor to LibriVox! Lora

Chapter 12--Overall volume is within the desired range
**3:37--please shorten the pause between "for" and "the next one"
**3:51--"a list" should read "a lot of"
**6:35--smooth out "By the great horn spoon"
**7:49--omit "a" from "roosters in rut"
**8:55--smooth out stumble before "fear"
**9:04--omit repetition of "Cognisance...criticism."
**9:54--revise/smooth out "for interrupting such a luminous altercation."
**10:02--"Discover" should be "Discovered"
**10:17--"observed" should be "disturbed"
**11:02--omit "then"
**11:15--omit "Cimarosi"
**12:02--smooth out "but poor Flaubert has had hard luck"
**12:25--"hasn't" should be "has"
**12:42--smooth out/re-read "You are an old-fashioned bourgeois, Pop Flaubert!"
**13:09--the word is "demanded"
**13:13--"looked at" should be "looked like"
**13:18--omit "broad nose"
**13:36--"approached" should be "reproached"
**13:56--please re-read the word "Struldbrugs"--I know it is hard to pronounce!
**14:20--omit repetition of "vastly"
**14:58--add "how" to the phrase "how heartily"
**15:26--shorten the pause between "risible" and "scenes"
**15:40--please re-read "Out on a crowded, expressive Broadway I stood, dazed and irritated."
Say "End of Chapter 12" instead of using the chapter title
Shorten the ending silence to 5 sec. please--and omit the barking dog noise in the background :D

Hi Nila--
Here are the notes for Chapter 30. Volume is within the desired range.
:58--smooth out stumble before "conspiracy"
1:34-1:55--background noise of barking dog needs to be omitted
2:23--omit "many"
2:54--"immortalist" should be "immoralist"--no "t"
5:21--omit stumble before "decrees"
5:28--smooth out the phrase "and stays the wheels of the chariot of the moon"
6:08--"prose-maker" should be "prose-master"
6:36--"design" should be "divine"
7:11--this one is hard to pronounce; please smooth out "inspissated gloom"
8:48--make sure the word "itinerant" is clear
9:01--omit word before "bark"
9:30--"deity comes" should be "deity cares"
10:20--shorten pause between sentences
10:58--add the word "if" to "If they had not been oppressed..."
11:21--correct the phrase "Ages past woman should have attained..."
13:30--say "End of Chapter 30" instead of using the chapter title--rest of the ending is okay

Thank you,
Lora

Hello Alan,
Thank you for your recording of Chapter 9. Here are my PL notes:

9:04--"arches" should be "aches"
**At the end of the recording, please say, "End of Chapter 12" and leave 5 secs. of silence.

Many thanks!
Lora

May I claim chapter 1, "Unicorns"?

I wish we could find more of Huneker's writings; I find him charmingly droll in the pieces I've read so far.

health and honeysuckle flowers,
Owlivia/Deborah

To Mark Chulsky--
Very nice job on recording a long chapter 4! I have a few PL notes (listed below) that will make the text's meaning clearer.

**at 8:11 "professional" should read "professed"
**at 18:03 "his" should be "this" and just after, "irrideemable" should read "irremediable"--those are hard to pronounce and their meaning is related!
**at 19:03 "is it..." should read "It is..."
**at 22:07 "worth" should be "world"
**at 23:48 "health" should be "heath'
**at 39:45 "ingenious" should be "indigenous"

I will check back for corrections. Thank you!
Lora

Wow, Lora! Word-perfect! :thumbs:
Thank you for your diligence and nice words (undeserved, my eyes became glazed pretty quickly into the section, even though I'm familiar with the subject... :oops: )
Hope, I corrected it okay: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/unicorns_04_huneker_128kb.mp3

Thank you! I have been updating the MW for Stav, I think she is still having some trouble accessing it.
Is that still the case, Stav?
