Yeah, I will split it up and send and you can see if it is acceptable as is. Thanks. Jim :thumbs:

The split occurs on page 362. Jim :mrgreen:

P.S. I have added a section and renumbered.

thank you Jim, and wow, this section was heavy to read for the difficult ME excerpts... well plodded through. :thumbs: I can give a PL ok on the first part already. But need a rest now from this, I'll try to get to the second part tomorrow. A bit tired out now, sorry.

Please, you know that I know you have a great deal going on all the time. And I am in awe. Recently, I noticed that you had a submission that required so much attention that I wanted to intervene and say something about it. You are are so compassionate. I know you know I can wait for however long it takes. No pressure at all. Jim

for section 33 I have a small note:

> at 5:15: (p. 363) part of sentence missing "til thi puple passe, lord, til this thi puple passe"

I know you are in no hurry but also for myself I don't want the backlog to pile up :)

thank you

Sonia

ehm, no sorry, you misunderstood my note :( now you cut out the beginning of the sentence. It should be twice repeated almost the same way:
"til thi puple passe, lord, til this thi puple passe"

sorry I wasn't precise enough :oops:

Here it is. I should have listened before and after more carefully while looking at the text. Not your fault at all! Jim :oops:

ah the printing press has arrived, an interesting chapter in the history of books. And now the text is easier again, not many Middle English sentences or huge lists of reference books. A more agreeable section for the audience.

I only found one snippet to make:

> at 33:37: (p. 385) repetition of the first lines, you can cut one the version you want: "it follows that it was only books... [till] ... "the price of many books"

thanks

Sonia

Yes, a relief. But as you say interesting, especially for the likes of you and me who love language and linguistics. Jim :D
