Ukiuq!!!

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)

Thanks, it was cool. I liked it.

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Foblin

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.

I personally did not really like it I was scared of the throat singing

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
