  1. Is this spoken in Vanuatu? It has that general Austronesian sound, plus a good number of voiced fricatives, making me think it’s something in Vanuatu or another part of Melanesia (esp. given the number of [v] sounds).

  2. I heard the same a similar Austronesian sound as Sameer, but thought there was some Spanish influence so I’m thinking somewhere with a Spanish colonial past, say something spoken around the Philippines.

  3. I thought I heard a few Portuguese words, which made me think of the creoles of East Timor, Macau, and other places, but I’m sure I’m way off.

  4. I would never be able to guess the language but I’m glad I finally correctly guessed “Vanuatu” as a possible location! I keep wanting every language to be from there…

    (Also, I take it you must have the email addresses of these language-identifying bots…)
