Recording in Shortland Street
I spent the morning recording in Shortland Street. No, not a bit part in the TV Soap, but the University studio in the road of that name. An Israeli called Diamond and I were reading Hebrew words and phrases for the vocabularies project. We got through about a hundred, so with a bit more work we should have a good start.
I was glad that it was easier than I thought to adapt towards an Israeli pronunciation scheme than I expected, so Diamond and I should not sound too different. She walzed through her half but (naturally not being really a Hebrew speaker
) I kept having to stop and go back over phrases again to get them right.
