Here’s a recording in a mystery language.
Can you identify the language, and do you know where it’s spoken?
It certainly sounds like one of the Turkic languages, but whether it’s one of the Central Asian ones or one of the Volga Turkic languages I can’t tell, at least on first listen.
Surely, it’s one of the Turkic languages, but it’s not Oguz subgroup. It’s like Kazakh, because it converts c>j.
Certainly Central Asia I would say.
It is a Turkic language, but not one of the ones you’ve mentioned. It belongs to the Northwestern or Kypchak branch of Turkic languages.
Now that not too many languages left to choose from, I take Tatar spoken in Central Russia.
Since nobody is taking it, I’ll go for Kyrgyz.
It seems that nobody is going to get this – the answer is Karachay-Balkar (Къарачай-Малкъар тил), a Turkic language spoken mainly in Kabardino-Balkaria in Russia.
The recording comes from the GRN.
