  1. Sounds like a creole/pidgin/patois language. Some of the words of this possibly African/Caribbean-accented sentence sound English.

  2. I’m leaning toward southeast Asia… maybe something spoken in Indonesia?

  3. Judging from the number of appearances of “kan” at the end of a phrase or a sentence, I settle on Miskito spoken in Nicaragua.

  4. Daydreamer is right – it is Miskito (Mískitu), a Misumalpan language spoken by about 180,000 people in Nicaragua and Honduras.

    The recording comes from the GRN.
