Kaltxì ma Prrnen! - Animal Learning Book
« on: April 09, 2012, 12:03:47 pm »
This is my first attempt at formatting a book, so whatever comments you have would be helpful.  Thanks! :D
You should be able to play both at once and listen as you read. :)

The book is here:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B73OX3l7s9h3eGF1SnA3QnF4dFE/view?usp=sharing

The audio is here:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B73OX3l7s9h3cWJSeUd4dzhERkk/view?usp=sharing

(the above is the newest, corrected document address)

This is really good! You illustrated those adorable pictures yourself, didn't you? :)

As I already said. I think it’s great!
Maybe, once you think it’s finished, you could put it in one pdf file in book style … that way one could print it out – I know I would :D

How do you need it formatted, ma Plumps?  This pdf version is downloadable and printable... but are you wanting two pages together on a landscape page, or what?

Well, nice book! Do they count this work as peace of "literature" we are missing while acquire ISO code?
Maybe I create PDF version of my story about Ralu, when it'll be finished... [making note]

It’s definitely a step in the right direction ;)


Just something I noticed just now… I was using the PDF as a learning material for reading and pronunciation excercise. We noticed that the font is sometimes a bit difficult to read, e.g. … nìwin sì nìfnu? almost looks like *nìfnn?
For us who know that there is no such combination as fnn, for a zìma’uyu this could be confusing.

And here I thought the complaint would be that the ì looks too much like i.  I liked this font because it reminded me of my father's handwriting, but that might be more difficult for other people to read.  Let me play around with it a little bit, and then I'll republish the file.

;D ì & i
I thought so too ;)
In the end, it’s your project. Whatever you decide is fine with me … with such a great work :)
It’s just something we noticed while reading practice.

Thanks to Tanri, Blue Elf, Markì, and Karyu Pawl for clarifying the definition of mìn and kìm.  Book is now revised to reflect that. :)

I just checked, and apparently this document has not been accessible from the link in the first post since changes made in May. :-X
Sorry! :(  That has now been fixed. :)

Quote from: the book on page 6
Kxawm lu nga payoang a slele mì ayfay alaw.
We say ayfay and not the written "fay".

Quote from: the book on page 13
Kxawm lu nga riti hu kxetse atxumnga'.
Remember that it is Animal Learning Book ! Kxawm lu nga riti hu ngeyä kxetse atxumnga' will attract the reader and wil feel concerned as well as he/she was the animal(that's good), but the other sentence is good.

Kehe. she said "...in the water" which WOULD be *mì pay . BUT mì+ causes lenition, and pay has to become fay after   because p changes to f under rules of lenition.

I disagree, she just wanted to say "Maybe you're a stingbat with a poisonous tail "

I don't see why the ngeyä would be necessary or why it would "attract the reader", even though it would be also correct.

Good point!  I'll try to think of a good rhyme, and let you all know when I've changed it (again ;) )
