    I found this on the Helsingin Sanomat "Speak Up" page:

    "Sinulla on kauniit siniset silmät. = You have beautiful blue eyes."

    How do you say it with "greenish-blue"?

    Or:
    "My little angry rabbit has the most beautiful greenish-blue eyes EVER!" ? ;)

    Ok, so when I'm in Finland, and if I happen to have a cookie and want to offer it to someone WITHOUT the entire scenario turning into something WAAAY of course, how would I properly ask this? :lol:

    "Sinulla on kauniit turkoosit silmät." Greenish-blue = turkoosi or sinivihreä.

    "Minun pienellä vihaisella jänikselläni on kaikista kauneimmat turkoosit silmät IKINÄ."

    Rabbit could also be kani or pupu(well, thats actually a bunny :p ). And I`m not sure about the word ever if it translates at all... so you can leave it out too, the meaning doesn`t change.
    Also the word kaikista can be left out.

    Clear, isn`t it? :Spin:

    You might want to use the other word for cookie = keksi :p
    The question would be "haluaisitko keksin?", but if you want to offer that other "cookie", you can ask "haluaisitko piparia?" :lol:

    @Lantern Nut: greenish-blue is sinivihreä, just replace the word "turkoosi" with it, 'cause I bet it's quite unusual to meet a person with turquoise eyes :)

    ahh, thanks! :D Now I know how to offer cookies! I mean, I have been learning the important things like please, thanks, hello, goodbye, my name is, i don't speak much Finnish...etc. Of course I have a small vocabulary of profanity building as well, with the odd "gimme a beer" thrown in there. :lol:

    I think they are equally agressive.. So, use whicever suits you. :D
    You can say "Nyt Saatana/vittu/perkele turpa kiinni/tukkoon.. sounds a lot more agressive. :)

    Well, this is a very educational thread :D

    Maybe it would help if the Finnish people would add some directions for the pronounciation.

    ^If you'll read this whole topic, you'll find a link to a site where you can check the pronounciation, it's been posted here at least 3 or 4 times. :)

    I'm trying Danish at the moment, and it's relatively easy, except for the pronunciation...

    Finnish looks rather hard to say the least :D I wish I'd been born in Scandinavia instead of England, it'd make things much easier :p

    That's because Finnish words are on average longer than English words :D :p
    And since the the thread is so long I kindly repeat the link to the prononciation site for Justinschut so he won't have to search the whole thread ;) Finnish prononciation is really easy because one letter always denotes the same sound and vice versa. Hey, the prononciation site now works with Opera, too, ought to update the link description on my homepage :)

    Hei Maili, could you possibly get hold of Fred Karlsson's Finnische Grammatik, maybe in a library? The last chapter explains the pecularities of spoken Finnish compared to written Finnish. A very short example:

    Written: Minä olen puhunut suomea.
    Spoken: Mä oon puhunu suomee.

    Bodom-järvellä sattuu ja tapahtuu...katse-lta murhaaja mulkoileva....

    Could someone please tell me what that sentence means? It's xanthonyx's signature... For all I know the words mean something like:

    At Lake Bodom happened and occured... from the sight murderer glaring...

    But that doesn't make any sense as a sentence :err:
