Here’s a recording in a mystery language.
Can you identify the language and where it’s spoken?
It sounds like a language spoken somewhere on the Indian sub-continent, but I can’t really tell if it’s Dravidian or Indo-European.
Another wild guess –> Konkani
sounds a lot like telegu
lots of “o” sounds so probably Bengali or Oriya
A Simon, a chara,
Chuala mé seo ar iTunes agus cé go bhfuil sé sean go leor cheap mé gur seans maith ann go mbeadh an-suim agat air.
Bain sult as!
Well, I heard a word that sounded a lot like “telugu”.
Doesn’t sound like Telugu to me, I’m gonna second the eastern Indic opinion and guess Oriya (just cause I’ve been thinking of Oriya lately).
My thought was something Indian too, but then my wife went by and said “That sounds African”. Looking up retroflexes, I see that last weeks Bench and its neighbour Sheko, both have them, uniquely for Africa. This doesn’t sound like Bench at all, but since WP tells they’re not closely related, and since I’ve no better idea anyway, I’ll say Sheko.
The answer is Oriya (ଓଡ଼ିଆ), which is spoken mainly in Orissa in India.
The recording comes from the The South Asian Literary Recordings Project, and is an extract from a story called “Sana prema”, read by the author, Kishori Charan Das.
