    A few Spanish words otherwise I would guess a native South American language no idea which of the many.

  2. Jonathan says:

    The pronunciation of ‘dios’ sounds more Portuguese to me than Spanish, so I’ll go with something Amerind from Brazil.

  3. Nathan says:

    This is a total guess, but… maybe something related to Navajo? An Athabaskan language.

  4. Simon says:

    Here’s a clue – this language is spoken mainly in Nebraska.

  5. Roger Bowden says:

    I wonder are the apparent Hispanic words,quinto,dios and Maria simply coincidental sounds are does this particular Nation (Paw-nee ?) have some Catholic and therefore Latin lone words.

  6. Simon says:

    The answer is Omaha (Umoⁿhoⁿ), a Sioan language spoken in Nebraska in the USA.

    The recording comes from the GRN.
