Here’s a recording of a mystery language. Can you guess or do you know which language it is?
Clue: this is a member of the Tibeto-Burman family of languages spoken in parts of Thailand, Burma and China.
Since the quality of the recording is all too bad, I have to trust in your geographical description, Simon. Is it Karen, the language of the people of the Golden Triangle?
I’ll guess either Burmese or Dzongkha.
Perhaps it is Shan?
I guess Akha because there is a new con-script for that language that fits the description.
BG is right – it is indeed Akha. The recording comes from the Akha Language Podcast.
Yeah, I got one right!
