    Could it be Aleut, spoken in Alaska and Kamchatka?

  2. Simon says:

    Right area, more or less, wrong language.

  3. Daydreamer says:

    Not so mysterious this language any more, since we had it once before.
    (I remember the woman’s voice in the sound clip or the video on YouTube the other clip was linked to.)

  4. David Craig says:

    Sounds like a Na-dene language to me.

  5. Elendil says:

    Tlingit, maybe?

  6. Simon says:

    The answer is Tlingit (Lingít), a Na-Dene language spoken in parts of Alaska in the USA, and British Colombia and the Yukon Territory in Canada.

    The recording comes from YouTube.

    Daydreamer – I’d forgotten that I’d used this clip before and it was quite a while ago.
