Thanks Kudrna,

I've made the changes, see here:

https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/storiesthatwordstellus_06_oneill_128kb.mp3

new length is 15:42

I had to record those couple of sentences anew - I hope the change isn't too jarring

Connie
Thanks Connie, PL OK now :thumbs: I can hear that you've inserted a new part but it's definitely ok :)

And thanks for this one, too :) I've got some PL notes:
  • 5:17 – the text says "so does the Gotha – name of ill-fame" but I hear "name of ill-fate"
  • 11:28 – the text says "We speak of a very rich man as a Craesus"; for this one I had to look in the dictionary and it says that it should be pronounced as /ˈkriːsəs/
  • 13:15 – the text says "A mentor is a person who gives us wise advice" while I hear "who gives us wide advice"

Thanks, Colleen, it's almost flawless :) The only thing that needs to be corrected is the silence in the beginning – it should be something between 0.5 and 1 second.

Thanks, Ruth! Yes, really interesting chapter indeed :) I especially liked the history of the word soon – how procrastination changes not only our lives but also the meaning of words :lol:
I've got just two PL notes:
  • 18:01 – the word "seneschal" – there's one extra letter s in it
  • and 19:30 – the text says ""ignorant" from which it was derived" and I hear something like ig-norant
Thanks!

Hi Michael,
section 3 is in the MW with length updated, ready for spot PL :) I corrected the spots you mentioned, sometimes with two or three words around them:
Kazbek wrote:
June 11th, 2020, 7:34 pm
(1:00) Ægean
(1:07) missing word "they called Ereb"
(4:17) 1702 (missing OH)
(4:35) 1804 (missing OH)
(4:46) Mediterranean
(8:13) wounded
(10:15) "spreading into four counties, and as big as a county itself" (hearing countRy both times)
(16:29) hearing "any" instead of "many"
(16:43) "counties" (no r)
Thanks!
Kudrna
