Amele?
Yes [tick]
Your turn.
P.S. How did you know that?
I thought Amele is pretty obscure, but it is purported to have more than 1000 cases. Is that true?

It's luck more than anything else. After you confirmed it's a Croisilles language, I looked at the Ethnologue's list of Croisilles languages with the intention to find some sample sentences of each language to compare with the text. Amele happens to be the first language on that list, so I thought that, as the few sentences I've found are similar enough, it may be worth a shot.

It's extremely likely that you "won", because of that, I'm gonna say it's Kalmyk
