Looked through the tra-files and found a few typos.

mazzy25j.tra:

@32 = ~Are you so sure, <CHARNAME>? Could we have not stayed, defended the city? Perhaps we...~

have not stayed -> not have stayed

mazzyj.tra:

@84 = ~If there had have been, I would have taken it.~

had have been -> had been

@154 = ~You will have your revenge, <CHARNAME>, but our priority is rescuing Imoen. Let us make haste; the sooner we can rescue her from Irenicus's clutches, the sooner we can exact justice upon him and that foul witch, Bodhi.~

Irenicus's -> Irenicus'

@184 = ~If you had have said that a few months ago, I would have agreed with you. Now...~

had have said -> had said

@239 = ~It felt right. It is difficult to explain. My father was a devotee of Arvoreen, too, before he died, and though I pay my respects to the other Gods, Arvoreen has always held a place in my hear. He has never guided me wrong.~

hear -> heart

Thanks for going through all these mods, it's great to have someone giving them another once-over!

In this case, I'm going to disagree with you on a few of them; "have not stayed" and "had have been" were deliberately phrased that way. The others are, of course, absolutely correct :D Thanks!

No problem! Thought I would check a few mods I will be using in a future playthrough. And your call on the grammar of course! Note that @32 and @33 disagree a bit about the "have not stayed"/"not have stayed" phrasing.

@32 = ~Are you so sure, <CHARNAME>? Could we have not stayed, defended the city? Perhaps we...~
@33 = ~Maybe not, but could we not have stayed, defended the city? Perhaps we...~

They should both be "have not stayed," actually, thanks for pointing that out :D

I know it looks strange written, but spoken out loud it sounds much more like something Mazzy would say.

"If there had have been" just sounds unwieldy though. Does she really talk like that? I'd rather see "If there had been one" - assuming she's talking about having a choice (hard to tell without seeing the full dialogue).

Incidentally, @85 ("What do you have against thieves") is missing a ? at the end of it.

The typos in this thread are still present in version 2.1.
