    Ukrainian or maybe Ruthenian.

  2. Alex says:

    I’d say this is Rusyn but which of the many dialects I’m not so sure. It sounds influenced by Polish so I’d got for Lemko.

  3. Roger Bowden says:

    Maybe Sorbian/Lusation

  4. Christopher Miller says:

    Sounds like Ukrainian to me. But then I don’t know the details of Ruthenian or other related speech varieties, and it might possibly be one of them…

  5. Simon says:

    The answer is Rusyn (русиньский язык / русиньска бесїда), an East Slavic language spoken in Slovakia, Serbia, Ukraine, Poland, Croatia, Hungary, Romania and the Czech Republic.

    The recording comes from the GRN.
