Sounds like "pilii" not filii!

I hear "viri"

I find that her pronunciation really baffling at times. Especially a word that turns out to begin with "f".

Is the "the" necessary in the translation here?

    Five sons don't sleep would be a better translation if there are more. Otherwise it can be misleading.
