For those interested in Inuktitut, here is a sample of the language with its translation which can be found in the info section of this culturally diverse and lovely song by The Jerry Cans : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5neft4S0nr0

If you manage not to get scared by the few first throat-singing seconds, many of you will probably enjoy it! :P

Note the long Inuit words meaning whole sentences! B)

That was a very good song. Can speakers of Inuktitut understand Greenlandic by the way?

Probably they can. All the languages in the Inuit family are said to be closely related, and Kalaallisut (Greenlandic) is one of them. I guess it's probably similar to a Danish, a Norwegian and a Swedish all speaking in their mother tongues and all of them understanding each other with not a great deal of effort. Glad you liked it :)

Perhaps. But I could simply ask my Greenlandic girlfriend about it.

Oh, dear! Then close your eyes and plug your ears for the first ~5-6 seconds. After that, the thing will be, by contrast, bliss! :D :P
