To me, all the caucasian language families sound quite distinctive, for example Adyghe sounds a lot like Abkhaz to me:

To me the most "alien" sounding caucasian languages are definitely the north eastern caucasian languages.

Two samples from radio free europe:

Chechen:

Avar:

(delete the spaces in the links)


NEC languages really love throaty sounds :)
Compared to NEC/NWC languages, Georgian sounds VERY slavic.. (At least to me)

Thanks! I've been listening to those for like an hour now haha. Avar sounds the coolest!
But I think all Caucasian languages sound really cool.

I don't think I can understand any Laz at all. It looks like a completely different language.

I assume you're already familiar with this, onkel_xiaoma:

A very productive day. I managed to finish lesson 18 from Hewitt's book, and I got hold of at least 2 new
textbooks in Russian and a monolingual one, the Russian ones with plenty of audio. Still, I think I'll keep my
plans of taking the newspaper reader and aronson's after the ones I'm using now, all in all, those two Russian
books may be a bit easier than my level, and I'm also happy at I start to find books that are under my current
level somehow, that's encouraging =D

Just found several links of online libraries where I could get books in Georgian. Jules Verne's works are on my list, parallel French/Georgian reading ;)
