Here’s a recording in a mystery language.
Can you identify the language and where it’s spoken?
something like avar or chechen, cant be more precise than that. probably chechen, what with all the islamic vocabulary
I agree that it sounds like something from those parts, but the absence of Russian loans is a little surprising. An old recording or a recording of an old text? Lezg?
Also thinking Caucasus…accent + consonant clusters was enough to point me in that direction.
I’ll say Abkhaz.
I’m going to say Pashto.
Scratch that, actually.
A definite feel of a non-Kartvelian Caucasian language and I agree about the lack of corruption from Russian as well as an Islamic vocabulary, so I would guess a Circassian transplant language from the Levant, Iraq or perhaps Turkey.
After listening to a few other web clips, I’ll say Avar.
Something from the Caucasus region, maybe?? (as others said)
It isn’t any of the languages mentioned so far. This language is spoken in the Caucasus region, specifically in the north west Caucasus.
Adyghe. (Only because I stumbled upon the exact recording.)
Eee is right, the answer is Adyghe (адыгэбзэ), a North West Caucasian language spoken mainly in the Republic of Adygea in the Russian Federation.
The recording comes from the Global Recordings Network.
