    Sounds like it could be a Pama–Nyungan language, but I have no idea which one. (The closest I could come would be Walmajarri, but I don’t think it’s that.)

  2. Christopher Miller says:

    An Australian Aboriginal language, but beyond that, no idea. (I have no idea even of differences between `pama-Nyungan and other Aboriginal languages.)

  3. Simon says:

    The answer is Yankunytjatjara, which is also known as Yankuntatjara, Jangkundjara or Kulpantja, is a member of the Wati branch of the Pama-Nyungan language family spoken in South Australia by about 560 people.

    The recording comes from the GRN.
