Thank you for the add for Ch 6 and 9!
I am wondering how we are pronouncing the following words:

Nequa - Nee-qwa ?

Ganoe - Guh-no? or does it rhyme with "canoe?"

Dione - Dee-on? Die-on?

Cocytas?

Bybliss - Bye-bliss?

Oqua - Oak-wuh?

Thank you!

I look up words and then if they aren’t there then I do the LV way. Give it my best guess and say it with authority.

Cocytas - Koh-suyh-tess
Bybliss - Bib-liss
Oqua - Awk-wuh

Hi, this will be my first, but I'd love to do Section 10 (Chapter 11)
Name in the LibriVox Catalogue can be Dominic Cook.
Thanks!

Apologies, I meant I'll do section 12 (chapter 11). Not section 10 as previously said!

Great! Here is your catalog page: https://librivox.org/reader/16012 The Reader section details link is a great way to keep track of your claims.

This is a very long chapter. Please let me know if you have questions along the way.

Great job! Just two small corrections.

0:27 "NEQUA or The Problem of the Ages, by Jack Adams. [Section title]"
Section title should be from the MW. Chapter 6 – Sailing South

17:57 repeat – Wheather correct or not…which enabled us to use our sails to some advantage.
