Allo allo Michael and Kudrna:

Here's the link to my recording of Chapter 02: https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/storiesthatwordstellus_02_oneill_128kb.mp3

Track Length: 29:16

Do go through it and let me know should you find anything amiss. I'll patch it up as soon as I can! :D

Always,
Garfield
Thanks Garfield, nicely recorded again :) I've got some PL notes this time:
  • 15:00 – I hear “James one” but I think it should be pronounced “James the first”
  • 24:46 – the text says “a horse” but I hear “a hos”
  • 26:41 – there's a repetition of the sentence begining with “Sometimes the name was taken...”
Kudrna

Those waiting for PL – I've gone on vacation, getting back on Wednesday

Thank you for your feedback, Kudrna. Let me fix these and re-upload the file.

Always,

Thanks, Bhavesh! As a non-native speaker, I really enjoyed your pronunciation – it was nicely clear and understandable :)
I have only two PL notes to fix:
  • 3:51 – in the Shakespeare's quote "There's a divinity which shapes our ends, Rough-hew them how we will." I hear "how you will"
  • 16:54 – the text says "not mixed with too much of any base metal." while I hear "base material"
Thanks!
