Not sure I understand this suggestion. I did pronounce it to rhyme with "aunts, pants", etc. But some might say it to rhyme with "fonts". My mother is Parisian French. I will ask her tonight. :lol:
Oh, I'm sorry. Once again I forgot how differently English is pronounced all over the world. What I meant was closer to the Australian Aunt than to the American Aunt, see here in the Wiktionary.

The French pronunciation for Nantes is heard of in this video.

Section 31 is uploaded.

Section 30, checked with Mom and it is pronounced Nant, silent s. So I redid that at 13:30. Here's the upload.

Section 30 PL OK. (Had already been marked as such in the MW.)

Section 31.

05:30 Wow, I'm really impressed. :)
15:25 The text says "Mr. Paul Jones", you made him a "Dr."
17:05 The text says "This open hospitality", you read "hostility"
22:05 The text says "Dr. Franklin lives", you read "lived"

At 15:25 "Mr. Paul Jones", there is a hard break of voice. You probably heard that yourself, so I guess it's OK to you.

Therefore: Section 31 PL OK.

I'll start cataloging, but will wait to take any irrevocable steps until Michele says it's OK to proceed. :)

Sections 19 and 20 aren't in the uploader folder. :hmm: I have no idea where they went. They'll need to be uploaded again.

Thanks Tricia. Let me review the intro and keywords again (and that hard break :lol: ) before you pull the trigger. Might not be til tomorrow. You will leave the numbers as I have them in the titles right? I'll reload 19 and 20.

19 and 20 reloaded. The issue might have been adding _128kb to those files. I presume you are going to add it to the earlier files from your end, or should I and reload them all? Now to work on tweaking the Summary.
