Description of what is on the sound file:
I noticed there are no Romanian language samples as of September 29, 2006, so I decided to upload one. The sample is in mp3 format and features me reading the first two paragraphs from the Romanian Wikipedia entry on the Romanian language.

The speaker is male, and a native speaker of Romanian from Bucharest (the capital). That being said, I have spent a minimal number of years undergoing formal education in Romania, and have spent a significant number of years abroad in the English world, which may or may not affect my accent/diction. Judge for yourself.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
