  1. Something tells me it is a Polynesian language but for some reason I also wonder if it isn’t African based. My first instinct is the one about Polynesia though. That’s the fun of these quizzes!

  2. I think it is a Polynesian language, because you hear: riva riva, which in Rapa Nui means: well or fine, but I dare not say that it is precisely this language.

  3. I think it could be Austronesian, Malayo-Polynesian (syllable structure, full reduplication, directionals like “mai” etc.), perhaps Oceanic, but not Polynesian proper (because I do not understand anything at all of what is being said). Possibly a creole or pidgin from Melanesia as there is some English influence audible: “however”(?), “term”(?). Wow – hope it’s not from Africa after all 🙂
