Here’s a recording in a mystery language, which features someone reading part of a story.
Can you identify the language, and do you know where it’s spoken?
Do I hear click consonants (which are characteristic of some African languages)?
It sounds like a Mayan language to me. Which one, no idea. Lots of ejectives, and the typical consonant-vowel-consonant syllable structure as well as “sh”+stop consonant initials.
Vaguely sounds like something between Hungarian and Mongolian. Wild guess: Mari language.
Chris is closest so far. It is a Mayan language.
The answer is Yucatec Maya (Màaya t’àan), a Mayan language spoken on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico and in northern Belize.
The recording comes from the YouTube.
