Some words of Finnish

Post by BelgaFilipe » Mon Mar 18, 2013 1:41 am

Hey everyone! I'm new here! I tried to find a place to ask this question but "Culture" sounded appropriate.

I'm writting some stuff for a Course in Finland I want to apply and I need to now if there are any Finnish words which might have the same meaning as "Cheers". If possible 3 synonyms. I would be very grateful.

Thanks!

Hölkyn kölkyn
Kippis
Irregularly, some years ago, I remember someone toasting "to a bad condition", "huono kunto"
"maljanne", but I never get invited to those kinds of parties.
There remains that which is to be understood...

Well, yes... obviously the toast "cheers", but in Brittish English it seems to be used as a reply to almost anything. A slight overstatement, but at least for thanks and goodbye, and a lot of other cases that leave me confused. (See definition nr 2 here: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=cheers)
