Here’s a recording of a news bulletin in a mystery language. Do you know or can you guess which language it is?
Well at the end it sounds like it says Iran which leads to Persian. But the rest doesn’t exactly sound like Persian and Persian was already a quiz so maybe Dari? or Tajik? My only other guess would be an Arabic dialect.
I’m guessing Albanian-there’s a voiceless dental fricative (th as in thin), which Persian doesn’t have.
It is Neo-Aramaic, evidently Turoyo, originally from Tur-Abdin in South Turkey, now mainly in Sweden.
yes, I agree, it is sort of Aramaic (maybe Assyrian).
The language is indeed Aramaic and the recording comes from Radio Sweden International.
IDK – 在捷克年輕人大概會講至少一點英語和／或德語。年紀更大的人會講俄語和／或德語，也會聼得懂斯洛伐克語和波蘭語。
