Okay. This has been bothering me for some time now. In the
beginning of "Get Your Freak On" with Missy Elliot, there
is this phrase in some language I don't know what it is.
I made a transcription of it. Does anyone know? What does
it mean?

[kU'rEkara"mIn:adE mE "tSEktSE o "dOt:E saLa"go saLa"go]

' = secondary stress
" = primary stress
L is some mix between [l] and [r] and it sounds labialized
and velarized. Odd sound.

Hmm, I downloaded the beginning of said song to hear that clip: it's definitely Japanese... I can make out bits of it: I'm hearing "kore kara minna de mechakucha odotte (something)" Which means, as stupid as this sounds, something like "So, everyone dance incoherently/in a confused manner". I don't know, but it kind of makes sense in relation to the song :P Imperative
