To write in finnish

Hello guys. Recently I have adopted a new exercise style. I search for easy finnish texts, translate them to sweedish and then (some time afterward) back into finnish. This way I get training in producung continous text in finnish. When I compose my one text from scratch I often just go round in cir...

Re: Good course, teacher for speaking Finnish?

Aren't t the offline Finnish courses emphasize too much on the wrong parts? I dont say grammar/writing should be ignored, but speaking should definitely be more prioritized. Yes! most emphatically yes! Almost all exercises I've found on the net are of the kind "fill in the gaps". Theese kind of exer...

Toisella puolen järveä

Look at the sentences below: Toisella puolen järveä ei ole hiekkarantaa. Meillä oli mänty, johon ruuhi sidotaan kun tullaan järven toiselle puolen. (taken from "Kyllä meillä oli hauska" by Astrid Lindgren) Why is puolen used, why not congruence? Toisella puolella järveä ei ole hiekkarantaa. Meillä o...

Re: Gender of Tuu-tikki

Oh My! I'm intreagued by this Tuu-tikki character but I'm not convinced that having common sense and ability to restore order to a confused situation is a particularly female trait. The swedish version is unambigous as regard to Tuu-tikkis gender: she is FEMALE! Pronouns such as "hon" and "henne" im...

Gender of Tuu-tikki

Today I looked in the sweedish original text of Tove Jansson's Trollvinter. A couple of weeks ago I read it in finnish without having access to the original text. The finnish title is Taikatalvi, a more or less litteral translation of Trollvinter. To my utter astonishment I found out todäy that the ...

Re: directions

First I want to thank you, Upphew, for your answers. vuorien peittämä, yeah I should have geassed ... the agent participle! Regarding kylmä or kylmää.

Re: puoli pari and monta

Thanks! I see that puoli and pari is very much like the numbers. I can write kaksi kuppia, kolme kuppia, puoli kuppia and pari kuppia. Also the ackusative and nominative coincides just as for the numbers, no n-termination in the object (puoli kuppia and not puolen kuppia). But whai if pari stands al...
