I love to read, AND my employer matches my volunteer hours with a donation to the Internet Archive, flagged to benefit Librivox.org. How cool is that?

Hi Beth,

as I had a bit of time this morning, I took the liberty to listen to Linny's final two chapters, to help out with PLing a bit here.

I enjoyed your reading very much, Linny :9: you emphasize on the right spots and you don't speak too fast (which for me is easier to listen to and concentrate). Also, I barely found errors, so it was very agreeable to PL.

Chapter 30 is perfect and can be marked PL ok.

For Chapter 29, however, I have two little PL notes, which could be considered:

> at 2:56: “Master Richard had met her in York” – I listened to this 4 times and I still hear “New York”. If I’m mistaken, you can leave it, but I think you said the wrong city. :?

> at 22:50: in the Latin quotation “Benedicat vos omnipotens Deus, in nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti. Amen” for some reason you put an ‘a’ behind almost every word. Was there a special reason for this ? :hmm:

I try to PL Kate's two chapters as well, if I still find some time today.

Sonia

finished the other two as well :)

Hey Kate, nice to hear your voice outside Disraeli’s for once. :9: Loved your reading, especially that you read in character for the different direct speeches. This makes the whole text lively to listen to. :thumbs:

I wonder if you ever considered helping out in our Drama Forum ? (I can't resist advertising for that forum :mrgreen: )

And woah chapter 7 was heavy, so Andrew has no scruples killing a young girl. :shock: Didn’t expect that ending. But since I listened to the final chapters already, I know she will not die, hehe.

Both Chapters 7 and 9 are PL ok.

With that you are up-to-date as far as I can see. Pleasure to help out. :)

Thanks much, Sonia. It's good to check those off as done. I'll take a look at the drama forum when I look for my next project. I've been really enjoying doing short stories lately, and of course, this story is fun and a good one for really emoting.

Sonia,
Thank you very much for fitting these chapters in. I greatly appreciate your time.

Section 29 corrected: https://librivox.org/uploads/kathrinee/childofthemoat_29_holborn_128kb.mp3 24:39

Replaced: 2:55 – 3:02 Master Richard had met her in York and against all the wishes of his parents had insisted on marring her.

As for the other, well, I thought that's what it sounded like on translate google. If it's close enough I'd like to leave it as is. This quote I discovered after the claim and I almost gave back the entire chapter because of it. If it's not close enough I'll struggle through again but my husband who was raised Catholic thought it was ok and I think Beth did as well. <sigh> Oh well, let me know what I should do.

ah google translate ;) that explains it. Well I had to listen to this myself just now and I don't hear this pronounced 'a' at the end, maybe a slight glottal stopped 'eh', but that can be due to the computer-voice. And maybe the rules in English speaking countries are different than from what I learnt in school. :hmm: Anyway, none of us is a native ancient Roman, so I'm sure yours is fine too.

York is nicely corrected, so this can be marked PL ok.

Thanks very much linny and Kitty! For us non-Italian non-latin speakers I'm not going to be too fussy with the pronunciations. We all give it our best shot! MW is now updated with Section 29 marked PL OK! :thumbs:

Hi Trish,
Great job! 2 minor corrections needed and you'll be all set.

0:25 missing part of the intro - "Chapter 3 of The Child of the Moat. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
Say: "The Child of the Moat, by Ian Bernard Stoughton Holborn. Chapter 3 Hate and Love"

Please trim ending silence to 5 seconds.

Sorry I missed this before now. I edited as directed and re-uploaded the file. Its length is now 48:15.
