poor Joseph is always ranting in these mystery plays that he is a cuckold
So you can hear, the vowels are most often spoken like the Germanic pronunciation, the shift to modern English pronunciation was not that early. The r can be a bit rolled if you can do it. Final syllables with -e are mostly spoken as well. I hope I didn't speak too fast, but I also wanted to convey a bit the dramatic expressiveness. Then it's easier to understand what is happening here.
Let me know if anything was hard to understand or follow, then I can try to make it slower. If you wish you can upload your version and I can give you feedback But as I said before...I'm sure no one will complain: if you stick to a few basic rules already, it will sound quite genuine.
I’ll check it out.
WOW, it sounds so ferocious!
I'll try to do it justice.
Thanks very much...LJB
