    Two sentences more

    This time the mp3 audio file lasts only 8 seconds. I havenīt the faintest idea about the words or the meaning. I only understand "I am afraid", "He was doing fine in..." "number four " and "fast". Could anybody hear it and transcribe the words? It's the same movie as before. And, luckily I am finishing my work.

    We should say, "Could anybody listen to it...", not "hear it".

    The best I can tell, it goes like this:

    "I'm afraid we took him of his sedation too soon. He was doing fine on triflupormazine."

    "You better hit that sack. Those number 4's rock here real fast."


    Without any context, it's a little difficult to understand this short conversation. It sounds like two doctors or medical people talking about a a patient. The first one comments that they apparently stopped the sedation medicine too quickly. The patient was doing fine on the medicine trifulpormazine. Triflupromazine (Vesprin) is an anti-psychotic medication of the phenothiazine class. I think this is the medicine talked about. I typed it into google and this is what came up based on how I interpreted the word that was said.

    The meaning of the response from the second person is not clear to me, but I would say: You better hit that sack. (This means: you should go to bed!) Those number 4's rock here real fast. (I THINK this means: Those number 4's rock here real fast. (The medicine you just took - 'number 4's' is going to affect you quickly, so you should be in bed when the medicine takes effect.)

    Anyone else have something to add or clarify? Good luck with your project.

    I think it's "rock you real fast" but he pronounces "rock you real" almost like one word: "rockyareal".

    By the way, as I typed this the recording was repeating over and over. I think I need some triflupromazin or maybe some number fours.

    Re: Two sentences more

    You are right, Munch. "Four", in the context, was the number of the sleeping pill that he was taking. The conversation is between a doctor and a patient in a Psychiatric Hospital. To jerry081958: sorry for using "hear" instead of "listen" in my post. I didn't notice.

    Thanks a lot both of you. Without your help I would never have been able to understand the sentences.
