21:42 - Netzach And hey, don't blame people for not being able to correctly say "hyppytyynytyydytys "
21:42 - !J.O.O.E.! It's not a pretty language tbh. Surprised why anyone would want to learn it.
21:40 - Netzach Luckily there aren't that many English speakers who try to learn your obscure language ;) I kinda had to learn it, got Finnish relatives. Also helps when listening to Finnish metal ;)
21:37 - Redn1ght Yep. But I've heard many English speakers just butcher Finnish words... It's just... Ugh, torture to my ears.
21:20 - Netzach And regarding pronunciation Finnish is one of the few languages in the world that spells their words exactly as they are pronounced. If you know how each letter sounds you should have no troubles. /end rant
21:18 - Netzach So in that aspect it is at least a lot more "analytical" than i.e. my native language Swedish where many words come from Latin, German, English, Romani etc and dont follow any particular pattern
21:16 - Netzach I gotta disagree Red, Finnish is very straight forward since you can form any word from the root and it still makes sense, like kirja=book, kirjasto=library, kirjain=letter, most roots follow the same principle :)
