6,8,9,10: PL OK :thumbs:

PL note section 5:
0:28 I hear "and neither you shall lack", text reads "and neither shall you lack"

I was wondering to what extent we care about the pronunciation of words like e'en (instead of even) and o' (instead of of) in projects like this?
If we do care, there are 2 additional PL notes.
Section 5: 0:20 even instead of e'en
Section 7: 0:07 of instead of o' (twice)

(I just genuinely don't know if that's something I should be pointing out right now. Still working on getting the hang of PLing...)

If we don't care about these pronunciations, section 7 is PL OK.

Thank you :thumbs:

I personally think that even instead of e'en and of instead of o' are too small errors to bother. I dont point those out.

We sometimes pl a little stricter in poetry than in prose because small errors can have a big effect on the rhythm and meter of a poem, not to mention the meaning. But we still mostly work with standard pl (we let small errors go) rather than word perfect (note all tiny errors).

Consider what you think the impact is of an error on the reading and the poem. If there is no impact, let it go. If there is some, you can stay on the safe side and note it :) does that help?

As Carolin said, these two errors don't change the meaning, metre or rythm of the poem (if they had I would probably have noticed, I'm quite attuned to rythm in poetry), so I'd opt to let them stay. I wouldn't have pointed them out, but thank you for telling me and leaving me the option.

Regarding e'en, I have trouble pronouncing these syncopes so that they sound good so I always use the full word in those cases :oops: I think it doesn't distract too much.

I agree, they didn't bother me, so they're all good :thumbs: Sorry for bringing up the hassle!

Here are the first five of mine. The neighbor started mowing his lawn, so I'm waiting for some quiet...
Excellent job, Tovarisch. :clap: I was just listening to these with my sister sitting next to me and she asked me to tell you that she was "enjoying these recordings like a fine praline". :9: and I agree with her. :)

All 5 PL ok. Looking forward to the rest.

just listened to the rest of the poems by Tovarisch. Wonderful little recitations, all of them. :clap: I especially loved the poignant sentence: "and down with Worry !" You delivered that with a bang :thumbs:

I would say all of them can be marked PL ok. Since you however say in your signature that you want pronunciation corrections, there is one word that I would like to point out as it does also change the meaning a bit, although in the context people would correctly understand it, so I guess it is an optional correction.

for July 27

> at 0:12: "And boast a chain of fine forebears" - the way you stress it on the second syllable, it means the verb "to forbear", while here the author meant "ancestors" which is stressed on the first syllable, "fore-bears"

up to you if you want to correct it. :)

Great job all in all. :9:
