it's definitely not Russian or Arabic.  I will say it's based on a Germanic language.

haha oh.

any more or was it just to trick us? :P

what i find funny is the backwards version had words that were from other languages, or so it seemed!

I have more clips of me back tracking if you want to listen.  This was also for other people to post clips too.  But since I can't speak any languages really; I started off with the back tracking.  I was also curious to see what languages people would think it sounds like.  More people should record themselves talking backwards and post it here.  It's something entertaining when you're bored :P
