Here’s a recording in a mystery language.
Can you identify the language, and do you know where it’s spoken?
I think it’s either a Caucasian language or a (North?) American language.
Go with you second guess.
Total shot in the dark: Alabaman?
P. – wrong language family.
Newcomer here…been listening to these language quizzes for a long time and thought I’d finally say something.
I thought it sounded North American when I first heard it. I’m not an expert by any means on those languages, but I didn’t hear any sort of “ł” so that makes me think it’s not Athabaskan.
Other than that still thinking/researching…
I don’t think I really have an idea. Is it perhaps a Salishan language? I tried Nlaka’pamux, Lummi, Nuu-chah-nulth, Nuxalk, Halkomelem, and even Nez Perce, Haida, and Quileute (which aren’t Salishan). Doesn’t seem to be any of those…
(Because it was in the news) Siletz Dee-ni?
The answer is Salish (Séliš) a Salishan language also known as Kalispel–Pend d’oreille and Kalispel–Spokane–Flathead that is spoken in parts of Montana and Washington state in the USA.
The recording comes from YouTube.
Greenlandic or at least Athabaskan. But probably the former
Hey, I was the closest! Didn’t really expect that to happen :)
I thought it was a Salishan language, but I didn’t even think of “Salish” itself. I think I forgot there even was such a language :-P
I was gonna guess Lushootseed, close enough for me!
