    Definitely Finnic, not sure if it’s Estonian or Finnish or something else though.

  2. Čuovggas-Mikkal says:

    It’s a southern Finnic language called Estonian. One of my favorite languages.

  3. Drabkikker says:

    I’m also going with Estonian, due to the clear differences in vowel length.

    I don’t know whether it is Estonian or not but I would’ve thought the choice of Estonian for this week’s quiz would’ve been too easy especially since there are a few Omniglot regulars who post here that if not speak the language have a broad knowledge on the subject. So could it be an Estonian dialect?

  5. Rauli says:

    Finnish is my first language, so I know it’s not Finnish ;-) Sounds like Estonian.

    Eesti keele — Estonian.

  7. Christopher Miller says:

    Oops, that should have been ‘keel’.

    Estonian. This is a dummy text to make the comment longer.

  9. Formiko says:

    Definitely Estonian

  10. formiko says:

    Estonian or it could be Võro.

  11. Drabkikker says:

    Now I’m really guessing, but what about Veps?

  12. Simon says:

    The answer is Estonian (eesti), which is spoken mainly in Estonia.

    The recording comes from ERR (Eesti Rahvusringhääling).
