    Sounds roughly southeast Asian to me.

  2. Dominic Couture says:

    I would say Thai.

  3. Christopher Miller says:

    Sounds like an Australian Aboriginal language to me, but which it might be I have not the slightest idea. I could toss out a few language names hoping one might stick, but that would be mere guessing…

  4. Roger Bowden says:

    My guess would be in the region of Borneo.

  5. Simon says:

    Here’s a clue – this is a language of Micronesia.

  6. Simon says:

    The answer is Marshallese (Kajin M̧ajeļ), a Micronesian language spoken on the Marshall Islands in the North Pacific.

    The recording comes from the GRN.

  7. Cory says:

    If the answer wasn’t already posted, I would have said Yolngu (Australia), but it does sound remarkably like the Philipino people at my work.

  8. Dave Hutchinson says:

    Tamil (or some other Dravidia language) It is spoken in Sri Lanka .
