    Guys, I cannot understand the meaning of this shit!!
    Jos ruma on suoraa ja kaunis väärää
    kuka kauniin säätää ja ruman määrää
    So, the first one should be "If ugly is right and beauty is wrong"
    and the problem comes with the second one- I cannot understand it!
    IMO, it should be something like "who beauty___________ and ugly_____________"
    Can you please help a little? :)
    BTW, it's from here :lol:




    I can understand pretty much the entire song, but this part is killing me!

    If ugly is straight, and beautiful wrong, who sets beautiful and orders/rules ugly.

    REALLY random if you ask me.

    ^:lol:

    And btw, I've started the finish course I got last Christmas.
    Hyvää päivää - Hei sitten

    It's so difficult! But I want to learn so bad! Talked to a finnish guy on IRC/mIRC, and he said that "there's no finn who talks that polite". Well, the course happen to be that polite, so I don't know what to do else.

    Hey native Finnish speakers.
    I was wondering if you were taught a rule (rules?) in school to know when a noun changes and in which cases.
    For exemple:
    Kokous changes to kokouks~ in all cases except partitive.
    Koti changes to Kodi in almost all cases except in partitive, ellasive & illative
    Loma becomes Lomi in most plural cases.

    Are there any rules to know in which cases a word will changes its consonnants?

    Actually found an answer to my question I think. I read about the KOTUS numbering (Kotimaisten kielten tutkimuskeskus) and it seems to be what I was looking for.

    Though, could someone maybe explain to me why you have sometime 2 possible genitives plural or partitives?
    Ex: Partitive - Korkea -> Korkeaa/Korkeata
    Genitive pl. - Korkea -> korkeiden/korkeitten
