Hello!I am new to Librivox and I am Chinese. I wanted to help so I listen to section 6. I hope you don’t mind! There are only some small mistakes and it does not impact the whole section. You are confident and doing so good!

4:02, 那 should be na(last tone), but not nei (last tone)
It does not matter but “nei(last tone)” is usually used by the old Beijing people, and also it is the combine of 那 and 一, so it can make the word 那一些(na yi xie) become (nei xie), which makes it faster to be said. It is not a mistake because people are using “nei” in daily life, but however, it is not formal.

4:46,嵌 qian(last tone) but not first tone

8:00, 襠 dang(first tone) but not third tone

12:42 我這樣大的一個人, but not 這麽大

15:53 擲 zhi(last tone) but not second tone

37:14 寂靜 ,寂 ji (last tone) but not ji( second tone)

37:22 馬圈,圈 juan(last tone) but not quan(first tone)

37.42 匹 pi(third tone) but not second tone

and I think the rest are fine and pretty good!

Hi Benny!

I'd suggest that we only advise Tina to correct this part:

12:42 我這樣大的一個人, but not 這麽大

You may check your private message box and/or previous posts under this thread for why we choose to point out some things and not others.

I'm happy to have you help out a bit here and there, but only after you have read through what I've sent you AND obtained Tina's approval, yeah? That'll make all our lives easier. :wink:

And of course, welcome to LibriVox!
Cheers,
Yuqing :D

Hello, Yuqing and Benny,

Sorry for the late response. I've been moving on this project a bit slower due to activities at work!

First, it's always exciting to meet people sharing a mutual interest. I agree with Yuqing's point that the notes from page 1 of this thread can quickly explain many things. As with Yuqing, and Aleithia who worked on 徬徨 with me, I'd like Benny to know that I appreciate every minute you spent reading/listening to my work. Whatever your reason in doing this, it's a gift to me and I respect all the input given to me. Yuqing has been very accommodating as the DPL(Dedicated Proof Listerner), getting used to my Mandarin. :D :wink: Thank you. I leave it up to her to make proof listening decisions. It does feel good to know that we have more partners now!

Section 6 has been updated for your further check. Moving on to the next "mountain". It's going to be in the 70s here in Michigan. You both have a great weekend.

Tina

Excellent, Yuqing. Don't forget to flip the status for Section 6.
