    Wow, at first I had no idea. Then I realized it’s a relative of Finnish, my native language. And then I heard the word Vepsämaa, so this has to be Veps.

  2. Laurits says:

    Agreed, this has to be Veps.

    I had no idea of the correct answer, and indeed had never (to my shame) heard of the Veps language. But this is undoubtedly one of the most attractive-sounding clips in the ‘Language quiz’ series – more like this, please!

    The language is Veps (vepsän kel’), a Finnic language spoken in the Republic of Karelia and the Vologda Oblast in the Russian Federation.

    The recording comes from YouTube, and is a Veps version of Yesterday by the Beatles.
