Here’s a recording in a mystery language.
Can you identify the language and where it’s spoken?
sounds Lakota or other Indian language
I thing it’s any Indian language, but what?
I heard the uvular plosive /q/.
wow this one really sounds weird hmmm
LOL it’s Koasati!!
should’ve checked the News page first before the blog LOL
TJ: I was look at the news page and see this too!
Yup, I found it too. I would never have guessed: I was convinced it sounded like something from western Eurasia.
You’re right – the answer is Koasati (Kowassaáti), which is spoken mainly in Louisiana and Texas in the USA.
The recording comes from Koasati (Coushatta) Language Project.
While my grandma was a full blood Cherokee, my dad lived on the Seminole reservation in Florida. Although he didn’t speak Cherokee, he was fluent in Seminole (Creek) another Muskogean language. Both Seminole and Koasati have similar cadences, Seminole has more plosives, and sounds a little harsher.I’m partial to Cherokee.
