[insert comment about skipping leg day here]
you mean this one?
let me tell you something about our language, I know you probably have seen some very amazing posts about Finnish, but I just need to do this.
Keksijä Keksi keksi keksin. Keksittyään keksin keksijä Keksi keksi keksin keksityksi (= Inventor Cookie invented a cookie. Once the inventor Cookie had invented a cookie he invented that a cookie was invented… or something along those lines.)Yksikseskös yskiskelet, itsekseskös itkeskelet, yksikseskös istuskelet, itkeskellen yskiskelet. (= Are you coughing alone, crying by yourself, sitting alone, coughing while crying?)
Kokoa kokoon koko kokko! Koko kokkoko? Koko kokko. (= Gather up a full bonfire! A full bonfire? A full bonfire.)
I am finn, this is my main language and I barely can say any of those phrases above properly. If someone says that english or some is hard language, they haven’t seen this fucking language. I could keep going whole day with these kind of phrases.
Also: tuuli tuli and tulli means three different things. Tuuli is wind, tuli is fire and tulli is custom department so good luck with that.
Numbers are very fun to count too:
1-10: yksi, kaksi, kolme, neljä, viisi, kuusi, seitsemän, kahdeksan, yhdeksän, kymmenen
We Finns don’t mess around with little bitsy words at all. If we are going to use the word “the” or “a” or “by” we stick it onto a nearby word as an ending. I don’t want to write how to add those things, but I’m sure you all remember that funny dog meme about different lands pronouncing dog?
Also, phrase “kuusi palaa” has 9 different meanings and you can look them here
I’m so proud to be finn and being able to speak this language, my favorite thing to do is google “finnish language memes” or just “finnish language” and laugh and see not finnish people suffer also usually I learn something new about my language because jfc i can barely speak this tbh and i’ve spoke it like 17 years now.. We could kill people with our language.
It looks like a really corny family picture.
