Language Quiz 12 September 202112 September 2021 By Simon Here’s a recording in a mystery language. Do you know or can you guess the language, and do you know where it’s spoken?

There is something Spanish sounding in the tone and accent of the voice but it certainly is not Spanish. I am guessing it is a native language from Mexico, Central or South America. I heard the word “tata” which MIGHT be “father”. It’s either from The Lord’s Prayer or a recording of “The Wren” which is popular on the “I Love Languages” on Youtube. That’s my best guess ( and it IS a guess!).
Sorry, too easy … it’s The Prodigal Son in – oh wait, Simon said we should give others a chance, too 😉
I know what language it is and the one who speaks names it. it’s from Venezuela…
David, this language is also spoken in Colombia, and the word you are referring to is – in my opinion – only the 1st part of the language’s name. I think that word means “man” here …
This language is actually also spoken in Colombia and its name in Spanish begins with -G-, but its self-name begins with-W. Isn’t it?
The language is Wayuu (Wayuunaiki), an Arawakan language spoken in northwestern Venezuela and northeastern Colombia.
The recording comes from YouTube
