(Running Time 2:42)

Thank you.
A great reading, Paul. PL-OK

Interestingly, I once worked here in Sydney with a bloke from upstate New York who had the exact same pronunciation of "pleasure" as you do, sounding to my ears like "play-sure". Similarly he pronounced "measure" as "may-sure". Is this a New York State accent, or more a multi-state regional accent?

Cheers,
Chris

Here is Section 10, Impression.
At 0:30, I hear "The sea is a Sultana impervious and fair", rather than "imperious and fair".
While the meaning is different, it still makes poetic sense as a sentence with the substitution, so this can be an optional change, only if you feel you wish to. I'll mark this as PL-OK at this time.

Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris,

It seems to be northern Minnesota, and parts of Arkansas and Kansas that I have noticed. I'm sure there are other areas, but this is often the way I hear it pronounced. Funny how words can be different not only in other countries, but also even in different parts of the U.S.

Take care
Paul
