    Seems like there are quite a lot of foreign (non-Finnish) people here who are at least somehow interested in our fascinating (???), yet very difficult language...
    I thouht I'd start a thread where these people could ask us Finnish people anything they want to know.
    For example, if you've seen some Finnish texts in a shirt or somewhere else and you'd like to know what that means, this would be the place to find out...
    And I think it would be nice for us Finns if you'd tell us what useful words and phrases you already know in Finnish. And if you want to learn some cool and useful phrases, you could also ask those here... I believe that there are lots of Finns, me included, here who would be more than happy to answer your questions and teach you some official BODOM language!!!

    I just ordered a book called "Finnish: A Complete Course for Beginners" from Amazon.com. I don't know any Finnish yet but I've been wondering what "perkele" means.

    Really? It is very old word and it means something like "satan" or "devil" (not always the christian one!), although usually it's not so "strong" word as eg "saatana" ("satan"). I mean, much depends on which way you say it. It can be something like "damn!", but if you say it "from the bottom of your heart" it's one of the strongest words in Finnish language.

    I was told "perkele" only has real meaning to a Finn.

    I have link for you guys.
    http://efe.scape.net/index.php

    Best English-Finnish-English dictionary I've found in the net.

    (3) Results for finnish word: "perkele"
    1
    perkele
    deuce
    2
    perkele
    devil
    3
    perkele
    the devil

    Of course the Perkele word is much stronger in finnish language than devil in english...

    "Yes it is beautiful.
    Let's laugh at all foreigners in our saunas."

    Heh, aren't we Finnish people funny...? :lol:

    And take a look at BurningAngel's post, if you learn all those phrases, I think you're going to get along just fine with Finnish people (especially girls...)

    Lisää Kaljaa.......... really important this one. I think that we should write here how to say it in our languages...

    In Spanish is: "¡¡¡¡Más cerveza!!!!"
