Russian language podcast launched

Hello!

My name is Tatiana. I am Timur's wife.

We've launched a new project: Russian language podcast.

Each five to seven minute audio contains a short explanation of meaning for three pairs of words (antonyms) and some examples of their use. A full transcript in PDF format is available for each episode.

As for the choice of words, the great inspiration for me was a book by E. R. Laskareva called "Прогулки по русской лексике".

In our audio files you can hear the fragments of the following musical compositions:

  • Marceau "Boogy Doggy"
  • Olga Scotland "Coffee Morning"
  • Scott Holmes "Giving Logo".

We really need your comments and suggestions to make this podcast more useful for you!

Thank you for your attention!

An open-source project spanish-pronunciation-rules-php launched

I would like to localize the Spanish phonetic converter for different Spanish dialects. This task requires a lot of time, effort and a good understanding of the subject. So I need the help of the community. Therefore, I decided to publish a part of the code of my converter under GNU General Public License. The project is available on GitHub:

spanish-pronunciation-rules-php

From now on everybody who wants to contribute to the converter's algorithm is free to do so. More information here.
