Language quiz 19 October 2014 By Simon Here’s a recording in a mystery language. Can you identify the language, and do you know where it’s spoken?

I agree with Prase certainly a Turkic language and the reference to Ukraine suggests Crimean Tartar .
CClearly a non-Anatolian Turkic language. On the face of it, I wouldn’t know to say which one, butgiven the very native Russian pronunciation of the Russian loans, I would think “prase” and Roger Bowden’s guess of Crimean Tatar is probably the right one.
^^What they all said^^
The answer is Crimean Tatar (Qırımtatarca), a Kypchak Turkic language spoken in Crimea, Uzbekistan, and also in Turkey, Romania and Bulgaria.
The recording comes from YouTube.
