Language quiz

Here’s a recording in a mystery language.

Do you know or can you guess which language it’s in and where it’s spoken?

  1. I heard “Türkiye’de” but it is obviously not Turkish from Turkey. And then I also heard “Tatarstan” with a back, rounded sound for the first a, and then “Tatar-” again towards the end. That’s seems to be how Tatars pronounce it, so I’ll go with Tatar, too.

  2. Ok, this is kind of hard – but I would say turkish – the ‘l’ and ‘r’ sounds sound kind of slavic, but then there is middle eastern music in the background and there is somewhat of a glottal sound also.

    This is my closest guess 🙂

  3. Turkik but definitely not Turkish. I’ll throw out Kazakh as a wild guess.

  4. The general “feel” and uvular consonants made me think something from the Caucasus/Caspian region. Azeri works for me.
