Below are my comments for Paul Revere's Ride:

0:02-0:06 Intro could be enunciated a bit more.
5:15 Peril sounds like Pearl
Overall, pauses after lines could be longer to help understand the flow of the poem. Good recording nonetheless.

Below are my comments for The Battle of Lexington:

1:56- Killed sounds like cold

In general very good recording, very articulate.

Below are my comments for Ticonderoga:

0:30 - Cataracts is mispronounced
2:33 - Cataracts is mispronounced again
Pace was much better.

As DPL, when you have PL'd a section, you should change the status in the MW to See PL notes or PL OK as appropriate. You will find instructions for getting a password for the workflow system and updating the MW here -

Comments for poem 7:

0:13 - Sounds like sand instead of stand

1:00 - Says rise instead of raise

Other than this okay.

Please confirm that you have seen my previous post quoted below as well as the various PL notes on your uploaded files before you upload any additional files. If you have questions about this process, let me know.

Hannah,

Please adhere to the filename format in the first post -

poemsamericanpatriotism_##_matthews_128kb.mp3, where ## is the section number.

Section 2-7 that you have entered in the MW do not. You will need to rename these and reupload the files to the server, then update the links in the MW. You should also post in the thread when you upload a section. In addition, you have some PL notes to review.

Hannah,

You have not posted to this thread since May 21st or responded in any way to my comments or to the PL notes that have been posted. If I don't hear from you in the next 10 days, I will have to treat this project as abandoned.
IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

Hi! Again, thank you so much for letting me know about me forgetting to work on the book. I just wanted to let you know that I have fixed all of the file names just now.
