hi.

about letters when typing, they should sound as russian alphabet i think or when spelling. anyway it was as i say and it was more correct than it is now.

also about pronunciations, letters е, и ю, я with combination of other letters such as нет, обежали называли are also incorrect try to listen to native speakers. unfortunately, i cannot demonstrate how it should be here in e-mails, but most of these changes are really messed up whole use experience

By rhdunn:

The changes to Russian were made as a result of #373 (feedback on the espeak Russian pronunciations), with @valdisvi helping write the Russian rules. This is the same as Jonathan did with espeak, as he was not a native speaker of the various languages, but used feedback from native speakers (like with #373 here) and resources such as Wikipedia.

For the pronunciation of щ, that should be reverted. Both forms are correct[1], [2], with the 'sch' ([ɕː]) form being Standard Russian, and from what I can tell 'shtch' ([ɕt͡ɕ]) either a conservative accent in older speakers, or a regional dialect.

For the letters, that change was made to fix when the letters are used as prepositions (e.g. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%D0%B2#Etymology_2).

Thanks for reporting the pronunciation issues.

beqabeqa473,

it happens to be, I know Russian very well. Because of russification policy of Soviet Latvia, I learned Russian as my 2nd language around year 7. Later, because of militarization of science in Soviet times I learned theoretical mechanics, radio electronics and nuclear physics only from Russian literature. I not only learned, but passed my car driving license exam in Russian, because Latvian groups were overbooked ;-) I have worked in St. Petersburg for several months in branch of Exigen Services, and I have worked about 1 year for eGlobal, which was Russian company moved from Tambov to Riga. Also there official and conversational language was Russian. And even now, when I teach programming for new employess for Accenture Latvia in English, I have students from Azerbaigan, Uzbekistan, Russia and Ukraine and we use Russian as unofficial conversational language.

Because of history and current lobby of terminated living permissions in Riga almost half of speakers in Riga speak Russian. Of course, I know, that Russian of Latvian speakers is different from "Standard Russian", therefore I don't attempt to make espeak sound like that. But, I also don't want espeak sound like slang of Siberian-native "gopnik", which has learned Russian in army or prison. Therefore I think espeak should sound like "Received Russian" (similarly to "Received Pronunciation" of English), or Russian of professionally trained broadcast readers, who don't talk in slang and "eat up" consonants. Therefore I don't like, that pronunciation of e.g. "ш" and "щ" is the same, even though many speakers talk in a such way.

If there was enough support from other speakers in Russia and other Russian speaking countries, I would help to introduce different accents of Russian, but without such support from Russian speaking community it is too much effort for me.

Particularly about you comments:

letters when typing is also pronounced incorrectly, they are short for example с б в ж к

What exactly do you mean by that?

letter л is very soft.

This is known problem, and I have not changed anything, because definition of "l" is wery complicated, and making it sound properly in all combinations with other sounds requres serious effort which I can't currently afford.

#474 problems with russian language

hello.

with recent changes with russian language pronunciation of several words were changed. for example word "общение" letter щ sch is incorrectly pronounced.

letters when typing is also pronounced incorrectly, they are short for example с б в ж к letter л is very soft.

i have a question why person who has no knowledge of this language such as @valdisvi is changing so serious things? if he had, these mistakes which makes synthesizer usable in russian language never be existed.

please revert changes or fix them.

thanks.

#472 Improvements for German, second try

Those are the improvements for German again I tried to post 3 weeks or so ago. This time, I tested them online and there didn't appear to be any errors, so I hope this will be able to merge correctly. Thanks in advance for doing so.

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Pull Request #472 Improvements for German, second try
By hozosch:

I used A: whenever I wanted it to pronounce the a long and a where I wanted it to pronounce it short. "General" as a standalone word is pronounced with a long a, and the rule for general (is is probably intended for the word "Generalismus", where I would pronounce the a short. I removed the @- phoneme in the gn rule because in my view it's overpronounced. You can revert this change, but could you may be try to shorten this phoneme even more? The secondary stress in the numbers gives it a better flow in my opinion, so that's why I did it.

By rhdunn:

Regarding merging pull requests, it depends on how easy they are to review and test. That's why some pull requests get merged quickly.

Thanks for fixing the build issues.

Things I am reviewing/checking:

  1. Formatting of the files (so they are consistently formatted).
  2. Incorrect merger of the changes from the master branch (not removing the symbols now specified in en_emoji).
  3. Review of the use of A: instead of a -- this is something you have been doing inconsistently (e.g. changing general but not general (is. I'm currently undecided on this, because it is not how the various words are transcribed for standard German on wiktionary.
  4. Reverting the gn changes -- they sound better with the original @ (e.g. listening to the pronunciation of Gnade in https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Gnade).
  5. Mixed primary and secondary stress on the _0C and _0M1 number rules.

This, in conjunction with the feedback from another German speaker on the previous changes to German, is why these changes are slow to be merged.

By hozosch:

Hello. I would like to know why you are wayting so long for merging it. Sometimes you merge pull requests pretty much as soon as they are opened! If you are waiting for me to make any updates, let me tell you that all the things I would like to have fixed have been done now for the moment being. Also, there aren't any errors like in my prior pull request, so there shouldn't be problems when merging. If you have problems understanding the changes I made, please let me know and describe. I just really went for what sounds better to me and I am a dead native german, so I'm certainly not wrong in choosing the right phonemes, at least in my view. I was also grown up speaking the standard form of the language; there may be differences from region to region, but I don't normally speak a dialect.

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #306 Possible issue with ucdtools integration on Android
By pvagner:

I have tried this again and yet one more thing I have noticed. The issue is that non ascii characters are spelled inside of a words effectivelly treated as being non alphabetic somehow. Today I have noticed that all of them are spelled out but letter č is not spoken at all. Might this be that there is a locale clash issue i.e. the fact locale configuration of the PC where I'm building does not match the phone's locale? Or might this have something to do with file encoding? I am testing this on Samsung Galaxy S 7.
