When I first heard this, I thought they were saying "Rlinga Rlinga Rlinga" -- it wasn't until I glanced at the name on the CD that I realized otherwise.
Listen to the audio clip and let me know what you think. It does sound like "rlinga rlinga rlinga" does it not?
Then I wondered, could this be evidence of the R in an intermediary state as it moves from Europe towards Asia, where R's often sound like L's?
Language is fascinating to me. I took a linguistics class once and the professor said you could tell where someone was from in the U.S. based on what words they used, like (among others):
- purse vs. pocketbook
- sub vs. hoagie
- water ice vs. slurpee
- bucket vs. pail
- soda vs. pop
