  1. This is a toughie! Some of the sounds make me think it is a Turkic language and there are some endings that make it sound so as well.

  2. Yes, this is a hard one. The only thing I could notice were some ejective(-ish) sounds, but they didn’t link to any language I’m familiar with. Looking forward to the discussion and the answer.

  3. This sounds to me like a Sinitic language that is either entirely non-Mandarin (e.g. Wu) or at the outer edges of the Mandarin group (e.g. Lower Yangtze Mandarin).

    For a moment I thought maybe this could have been a reconstructed performance of Middle Chinese, but more likely this is just a modern variety of Chinese that preserves some of the phonology of Middle Chinese lost in modern standard Mandarin, like final stops and voiced obstruents.

  4. Whoa, it sounds kind of like Cantonese, but spoken with a Thai accent. Very strange indeed. Is it a Sino-Tibetan language spoken in South-East Asia?

  5. Uff!, it’s very difficult to me, although I think it sounds as a Sinitic languge as Dungan. Really…I don’t know which language is this one…
