Here’s a recording in a mystery language.
Do you know or can you guess the language and where it’s spoken?
It sounds like an archaic dialect of Arabic, or a language heavily influenced by it. Mehri, maybe?
Somali, I guess.
It has a semitic sense to it.
@lukas: there are some Arabic-like words. I could figure out words like “hizb” (political party) and other things related to military or something. I guess it is a news broadcast. And I’m guessing Somali because I heard him say “Maqdisho”.
I thought it was probably Somali (because of the mention of Mogadiscio near the end). However, I was surprised at how many individual words sounded vaguely Spanish
it sounds rather strange to be a news broadcast, I don’t know maybe the intonation patterns are part of the language…
Based on the intonation, I assumed it was some sort of political or religious broadcast. My guess had been something in the Turkic family, but I like TJ’s suggestion of Somali.
Somali? Sounds like but isn’t quite Arabic …. I think I heard Mogadishu.
It differentiates between long and short vowels, which Somali does, but other languages from the Cushitic family also do. After comparing with the older Somali quiz
I think it isn’t totally the same, so I would guess it is, for example, Oromo.
The answer is Somali (af Soomaali), spoken mainly in Somalia
The recording comes from Radio Banadir
I GOT ITTTTT
so I get anything for it? :/
All expenses paid holiday in Muqdiisho?
LOL in a seocond thought… I think I will get myself busy in this boring office for the time being…
