What language or dialect does Karum speak in Space Sweepers? It seems to be mostly English, but with something else mixed in.

IMDb lists the languages in the film as Russian French Spanish Korean English Japanese Danish Chinese Arabic German Filipino Mandarin. Karum is voiced by Bambadjan Bamba, who was born in the Ivory Cost but has lived in various places.

  • @bcdotweb yes, that too. I think he was played by Nas and voiced by Bamadjan? – z0r Mar 14 at 21:16
  • So Nas must speak Korean 🤔 – z0r Mar 14 at 21:17

While I'm not an expert on this specific language, to me it sounds very much like Patwa, a creole of Jamaica with largely English based vocabulary that could arguably be considered (in my opinion MISTAKEN for) an English dialect, which is perhaps how it was missed in the IMDB credits, but really ought to be listed as it's own language considering how unintelligible it is to most standard English speakers outside of Jamaica. Most Jamaican kids grow up speaking Patwa and don't learn English until they're in school.
