Definitely tonal. Somethin in the Hmong-Mien family or Karenic family?
Some southern Sinitic language spoken in Singapore and/or Taiwan? Because I think I hear those two names mentioned, as well as “Hokkien”. In addition, there is an English sentence: “What is your language?” I am not too sure, though …
Here a clue – it’s a Hmong-Mien language spoken in southern China.
I am going to guess either Hmong Dau or She, since I went through the list of Hmong Mien languages in that family and those two were the only ones I found any sort of recording or video clips. Of course that doesn’t mean anything!
I was completely on the wrong track because it is indeed She!
The language is indeed She (Ho Ne), a Hmong-Mien language spoken in Guangdong Province in southern China.
The recording comes from YouTube
