Here’s a recording of part of a story in a mystery language.

Do you know or can you guess which language it’s in and where it’s spoken?

    I wanna say thai or lao, it also could be a tai language as well. I vote for Thai though.

  4. michael farris says:

    Didn’t sound at all familiar at the beginning but sounded Thai-ish at the end so I’ll go with Lao.

  5. xarxa says:

    sounds tonal, southeast asian… thai? khmer? i really dont know

  6. Abbie says:

    Defiantly a form of Thai. I hear เพื่อให้ in there, and all the กัน or การ, and it feels like Thai, but I can’t parse much. It could be Isaan or Lao but it’s defiantly not Vietnamese.

  7. bronz says:

    Definitely not Vietnamese nor standard Thai. It does sounds Thai-ish to me, so the best I can guess is a Tai language, probably closely related to Thai. Those hours of watching Chinese martial fantasy TV series dubbed in Thai and Vietnamese finally paid off a little. 😀

  8. Felix says:

    One more vote for Lao.

  9. Traumus says:

    Definitely Kradai/Tai, but Lao sounds a little easy, and I agree with bronz, it’s not pure Thai.

    Maybe one of the dialects of Thai…

  11. Simon says:

    The language is Lao (ພາສາລາວ), which is spoken in Laos and Thailand.

    The recording comes from RFI.

  12. Interpreter says:

    Is the Lao the answer?

  13. Simon says:

    Yes, Lao is the answer.

  14. michael farris says:

    So …….. you’re saying it’s Lao?
