Hey folks,

Oof! That was more of an adventure in pronunciation than I anticipated :lol:

I *think* I'm good on that side, but ready for PL regardless - please do let me know if I've made any awful errors, or if my schoolgirl French, or Chaucerian English is just... bad... haha! Happy to update if needed.

Section 12:

Thanks!
I normally don't worry about pronunciation, unless it is really bad! Thank you!

Hurrah! Thank you! I'm still new enough to expect a raft of corrections at PL stage... :D

Corrected pronunciation of "Plantagenet." :oops:
I'd been reading some French names for another project, and pronounced it accordingly.

I did the readings for Chapter 12, if you want a different format on how I should present it, let me know haha. Thank you for all your hard work!

1:43- you said "guards" instead of "knights"

5:50- you said "coins" instead of "crowns"

6:27- you forgot to say "hand"

6:40- you added "hearing" when the word isn't on there

Are you volunteering to DPL this project, because we already have one? I am not requiring word perfect proof listening, and the listening will be done as soon as I can get to it.

Thank you for chapter 11, and, for chapter 1, I did give it an OK. I don't worry about pronunciations because English words can be pronounced differently in different parts of the world. Do you know the spot is where you made that change? If you don't I will have to listen to your whole file again in order to find it, which is giving me that much more work when I am being bombarded by a bunch of sections right now. It is not good practice to make changes to your recordings after they have been given an OK, so that you know for the future.

Sincere apologies. Won't do it in the future.

It is at 3:33 - "Plantagenets":

No problem! Some people do get a little cranky about things getting fixed when they really don't need it. It is just fair warning, it is a lesson some have had to learn the hard way. But all is good, and section 1 is still PL OK! Thank you! :D

OH! my apologies. To be honest I never knew how the DPL system worked. I thought it was more like, you can jump in and listen for mistakes when the list says ready for listeners. I'll try to ask for permission before I do anything, sorry about that.

No problem! If you see a ~ in the subject line, then the project needs a proof listener. And, there are a bunch of projects right now that need someone to listen, that would be huge help!
