A Conversation for Finnish/German/English Phrase Guide


Post 1


What's missing here is some other words... i.e., what would you do if some German guy really ***** you off? smiley - winkeye)

If that is of any interest to you... can't help you with Finnish but with Germansmiley - smiley

Just ask me.

I didn't check out h2g2 in the last time, so I haven't been present to the discussions concerning my page. Anyway, now I am back again.

Well, I had some swearwords on this page. But I removed them all. A few people adviced me to do so, and I thought it's better this way.

There are some disadvantages of swearwords on such a page:
- As you can see this is quite a serious language guide, and swearwords would spoil it a bit.
- Swearwords are not a very essential part of the language, and the original title of this page was "The Essential Finnish". Many people can swear in any language, but not speak.
- Many swearwords are subject to change. They might be contemporary, but tomorrow they are more than redicioulus.

Nevertheless, thanks for the advice, there has been a version of this page with swearwords.
And don't forget, this is a Finnish page. They called it English/German/Finnish, but actually the German column has only one purpose: That Germans can learn the Finnish phrases easily. The page is made for English speakers and Germans who want to learn Finnish. When I integrated the German column I already had the fear that this page that is dedicated to this great language could be "abused" for things like learning German.

Okay, okay, I'm sorry... to me, you didn't really make your intention clear enough. I mean your intention of teaching people Finnish words ONLY. Sure it's a beautiful language. So is mine.

Anyway, what I posted was only meant to be a joke, don't take it that seriously. I had already realized what kind of guide this is.
