  1. I’m hearing clicks. THat suggests sothern Africa, but the phonology otherwise doesn’t seem right.

  2. I don’t hear any actual click consonants. I think what you are hearing is the high frequency parts of plosives, accentuated by the frequency response of the recording equipment.

    Based on previous language quizzes here, I would say it is from northern North America. That narrows it down to a few hundred languages and 29 language families.

  3. The language is Potawatomi (Neshnabémwen), an Algonquin language spoken in southern Ontario in Canada, and in Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin and Kansas in the USA

    The recording comes from the GRN.
