No, I'm not actually asking a question about a language. This is a game.

How to play:

There will be sentences written in a language here. You have to guess what language the sentence is written in. If you guess one correctly, you win 10 lingots. Competition will end 12:00 AM UTC, 7:00 P.M EST since I will not be able to look at entries after that.

1:

Kada benadam i benadam nase forro i igual en dinyidad i en derechos. Todos son baale razon i konsiensia i deven komportarsen los unos verso los otros kon fraternidad.

2:

人皆生而自由;在尊嚴及權利上均各平等。人各賦有理性良知,誠應和睦相處,情同手足。

(Hint: it's not mandarin)

3:

.هەموو مرۆڤ ئازاد و دوەقار و مافان دە وەکهەڤ تێن دنیایێ. ئەو خوەدی هش و شوئوورن و دڤێ لهەمبەر هەڤ بزهنیەتەکە براتیێ بلڤن

4:

Бардык адамдар өз беделинде жана укуктарында эркин жана тең укуктуу болуп жаралат. Алардын аң- сезими менен абийири бар жана бири-бирине бир туугандык мамиле кылууга тийиш.

5: Барлық адамдар тумысынан азат және қадір-қасиеті мен кұқықтары тең болып дүниеге келеді. Адамдарға ақыл-парасат, ар-ождан берілген, сондықтан олар бір-бірімен туыстық, бауырмалдық қарым-қатынас жасаулары тиіс.

6:

Tudo ser humano na ês mundo nacê libri e igual na sê dignidade e na sês drêto. Na sês razon e na sês concénça, tudo arguem debê porcêdê pa co tudo guenti na sprito di fraternidadi.

7:

18:

Toate ființele umane se nasc libere și egale în demnitate și în drepturi. Ele sunt înzestrate cu rațiune și conștiință și trebuie să se comporte unele față de altele în spiritul fraternității.

(easy one)

Translation: (All the languages translate to the same thing)

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)

(sentences taken from Omniglot.)

Good luck! :)

You may want to specify Sorani Kurdish, which is written with the Arabic script and is the one you provided. Other Kurdish varieties are not written with the Arabic script.

It's also Kabardian, not Karbardian.

also did you give me the lingots I earned? or is the counter broken

No.2 is perhaps a very misleading one. Firstly there is no language known as Taiwanese. If by chance 台語/Taiyu is translated as Taiwanese because of the characters used, and is referred to as Taiwanese here, it is likely Mandarin to be spoken in the pronunciation of Taiyu only. I do not know Taiyu myself but as far as I know the terminology in Taiyu is often different from Mandarin. I can perfectly read these sentences in Cantonese too, but if I am to express such meaning in a Cantonese conversation, the words would be different here and there. So I can say this is Cantonese equally? It has the same effect as writing down "a la carte", "deja vu" and say these are English...

Agree. I would have denoted pronunciation if specifically meaning Mandarin as spoken in Taiwan, since the writing system is identical (traditional characters are just as correct on the mainland as they are in Taiwan, though less often used). Unfortunately Woof has waded into linguistic and political choppy waters, but everyone makes a faux pas once in a while. :) A humble suggestion: try using IPA or romanization next time, and add that some options are dialects rather than languages.

Lots of Former Soviet Union (FSU) states have their own Russian-like languages, and use Cyrillic or Cyrillic-like script, including Kyrgyz (which is what I noticed 4. was right off the bat after a documentary a few months ago about Kyrgyzstan).

Limerick (/ˈlɪmrɪk, -mərɪk/;[4] Irish: Luimneach [ˈl̪imʲɨnʲəx]) is a city in County Limerick, Ireland. It is located in the Mid-West Region and is also part of the province of Munster. Limerick City and County Council is the local authority for the city.

The city lies on the River Shannon, with the historic core of the city located on King's Island, which is bounded by the Shannon and the Abbey River. Limerick is also located at the head of the Shannon Estuary where the river widens before it flows into the Atlantic Ocean. With a population of 94,192 (2016 census), Limerick is the third most populous urban area in the state, and the fourth most populous city on the island of Ireland.

Arabic
"Chinese" (still a bit traumatized by this)

6 Basque

9 Hawaiin, but then I see others got that right!

11 Vedic

13 Swahili

15 Aramaic?

16 Hindi

Interesting how Adam is several of the languages for man.

I think we need a polyglot to get them all. No researching on the net for answers!

Did that now. I put dots behind them so the computer, reprogramed it. I saw Ladino, on here in someone's answers, but didn't put it down until reading the text and concluding it was a mixture of Hebrew and Spanish. So I had a hint. Didn't realize it was correct when I did it tho.
