Hi all! New followers seem to be joining, so here’s another #intro:
I’m Daria, I’m an English #linguist at Tampere University in Finland where I study digital discourses (mostly through corpus and discourse analysis). One of my big projects is the language of pick-up artists, incels’ less extreme cousins.
I’ve also been trying to learn #Finnish for the last 1,5 years so sometimes I toot about that…
Please recommend other ling users for me to follow!

Over at the cesspool, #Finnish Air Force shared some images of #British #Eurofighter Typhoons on a Finnish road base where they landed for refueling during the #baana23 air #exercise. First for the visitors, I believe, part of doctrine for #Finland and #Sweden.

Aamuttaren Kalevala, Väinölän VapautusVirsi (The Kalevala of Dawn Goddess, The Liberation Hymn of Väinölä) is a poetry collection in progress. The two songs are written to the traditional Finnish Kalevala meter, and sung to a traditional Kalevala melody. Thus, they are essentially poems that are sung. In Finnish, we call them "runolaulu", which translates literally as "poem-song", but Wiktionary suggests "rune singing", in which "rune" refers to "epic poem".
A song about national unity and resilience.
The song commands the reborn Finnish heritage to be sung by children and the young to comfort the old and activate grown-ups, to unite and strengthen the different generations to face the dawn at hand in wisdom.
Lyrics: Miranel Tuhkalintu (2023)
Melody: Finnish (Kalevala)
A song about rebirth and liberation, with the symbolism of spring.
The song commands the ancient Finnish heritage to be born again and fulfill its mission.
Lyrics: Miranel Tuhkalintu (2023)
Melody: Finnish (Kalevala)
It’s been decades since the last time I listened to Nights of Iguana, which for a short period in mid-#80s was one of top candidates for ”conquering the world” with #Finnish #rock. Supposed to be the next Hanoi Rocks or smt. (Then there was Smack too, and bunch of others… but only Hanoi Rocks really ”made" it.)
Now NoI sounds a bit… pretentious and slightly comical in my years. But solid songcraft skills. And Puka Oinonen was (& prob still is?) an A-class guitarist.
Hirmuiset aurinkomyrskyt ovat tulossa nopeammin ja vahvempana kuin oli ennustettu
Very concerning as I keep hearing "get your booster now" from people around the world while Finnish bureaucrats do their usual "wait and see" act.
Week is finally over. During week I had chance to have nice remote interviews with several good companies. It is positive to see that #Finnish HR and #recruitment culture is much more nicer than the stories I have read from the US recruitment culture.
I can honestly say that each #interview has concluded with smile on my face and it has always been nice to meet new people.
I am quite #introvert so this kind of people meeting is much more nicer to me than offices.
Here we go again. "Fun facts about the #Finnish #language" – most of which are either not funny, no facts (not true), or not about Finnish. My angry rant: https://kielioblog.wordpress.com/2023/09/11/linguist-reacts-fun-facts-about-finnish-and-why-we-are-not-amused/
Hello, hei, moi fellow fedizens! Let's learn #Finnish and our gazillion grammatical cases and weird suffixes you can build into monstrous words!
We'll study a word that may not be that common, but everybody with pets - especially dogs - will understand instinctively what the word means. The word is a verb, in English it would be "to nose", in Finnish: neniä, with the root word being "nenä" - a nose.
What do you nose with? Your nose of course! In Finnish "with my nose" is one word: nenineni.

The White Reindeer 1952 ‘Valkoinen peura’
Directed by Erik Blomberg
A newly-married woman becomes frustrated as her husband, a reindeer herder for an Arctic village, spends much of his time away. Desperate for affection, she visits a shaman who offers a potion that makes her irresistibly desirable, with unexpected and deadly results. #Finland #Cinema #Cinemastodon #Classicfilm #Movie #Finnish #Film
@megalodon Ok, so I did a Finnish translation of #megalodon but some stuff will probably need to be edited when I see the exact context where it appears. Will the translation automatically be included in the next pre-release download, so I can check how it works, or do I need to do something more for that to happen?
And any feedback from more experienced #finnish translators would naturally be very welcome.
#PepsiCo products are no longer available on the parliament's premises, Finland's public broadcaster Yle reported Tuesday.
Lipton Cockton in the Shadows of Sodoma
Lipton Cockton in the Shadows of Sodoma (or simply Lipton Cockton) is a 1995 Finnish dystopian crime film written and directed by Jari Halonen. It tells the story of a private investigator living in a near-future federal state who begins to investigate unexplained explosion deaths. The film is starring by Jorma Tommila
This might be my most Finnish post yet. I want to tell you about something we absolutely love and are crazy about. Sauna.
Did you know there are about 3 million saunas in Finland? (The current population of Finland is 5,5 million). The last 5 of the 6 apartments I’ve lived in have had saunas in them and the one that did not, it had a sauna space you could go twice per week.
Sauna is something insanely calming and meditative. For us Finns sauna is not that spa-like ”steam room” they have in other countries, it’s all wood, rather small and hot, during summer we use birch leaves to whip each other with, we use tar as a herb and we just sit quietly in near 100 degrees Celsius (212 Fahrenheit). It’s supposed to be so hot you want to go out after ten minutes, breathe and relax. In the seventh floor I don’t have an icy lake but if I would I’d go right in, and then back to sauna… Sauna is not only to be enjoyed in the cottages, it can be enjoyed anywhere, any time, any way. It is a state of mind.
I love having sauna in my apartment. It is something otherworldly. It’s a luxury that I have without being a millionaire. It’s something that warms me during the winters and cools me down during the summers. Sauna is something I, like many other Finns, cherish and love. It stops time. It’s literally epic.
Sauna reminds me about the fact we are all human. We go there naked without thinking about it. Sauna cleanses the soul.
I wish everyone would have access to sauna multiple times per week like I do.
Btw I took that photo before throwing more steam, I do not want to ruin my phone. Lissee löylyä!
To my English followers, I sincerely apologise. Due to a human error, you may have inadvertently been exposed to content in the #Finnish language. I understand this has caused concern in the community, as even brief exposure to Finnish has been known to be dangerous.
The root cause for this was a mixup of the English and Finnish accounts, due to following some of the same people on both.
I have now done no additional precautions to prevent this happening in the future, and I look forward to our future fedi adventures. Surely I will not make this mistake a second time.
Am currently in Finland and just bought a bag that says "ei tartte päälle ajaa prkle". What I could find so far is that prkle stands for perkele and the whole thing is akin to a curse word or sentence but I don't understand the translation.
Does anyone here speak Finnish and able to explain?
I'm OK with good old ranting and cursing, I just want to make sure my bag is not insulting to the people who read it (or sexist / racist /…).
#Finnish has many cases. Two of them are:
• The elative case (elatiivi), denoting ‘internal location + from’; e.g. talosta ‘out of a house’.
• The illative case (illatiivi), denoting ‘internal location + to’; e.g. taloon ‘into a house’.
Now, let me understand something (and correct me if I’m wrong)… Even though they mean basically the opposite of each other, their names are pronounced the same in English (/ɪˈleɪtɪv/) 🙃
#linguistics #terminology #wtf
If it gets any more humid today, I’m going to have to go talk to the naked #Finnish men splashing water on stones and ask them to pull back a bit.
Totally misunderstood the #Finnish phrase "lyödä luurin korvaan" which I thought meant a physical assault with a mobile phone rather than just hanging up on someone.
But the factually disappearing industry is complaining it is too significant for the country to be shut down.
Guess what is the gross profit per Finnish person? 10 €. 65 M€ in total.
I’d like to not see the next pandemic happen due to #greed but here we are not even close to that but this is pure insanity.
– You gotta destroy one #sauna
Usually the method is to burn the whole building while lying wasted somewhere nearby.
I admit that my ”burn a resistor in an electric sauna stove while drinking one beer halfway” _sounds_ lamer, but I can assure that the situation scared the living shit out of me (figuratively speaking, thankfully, the benches are fine).
Smelling ozone in the middle of throwing water towards the source of smell... RUN!

Kissa = cat. The ending "-nen" is usually used to say something is like something. Like "cat-like".
We oftentimes abbreviate it to "-ne" in speech so what I'm trying to say is that your surname sounds like "cat-like" in my native language 😸 🇫🇮

Hetken mietin, että vastaanko englanninkielisiin postauksiin jotenkin näin...
"Anteeksi kun kirjoitan suomeksi..." Ja sitten kelasin että miksi minun pitää pyytää anteeksi siitä etten osaa englantia. Joten jätin tuon mainitsematta ja tuli parempi olo. Tiedän, että ihmiset osaavat käyttää translatea jos oikeasti haluavat lukea vastaukseni.

#Racism cases spread this time it's about the Chair of The Finns Party, Riikka Purra, is now facing scrutiny as racists comments penned under the username "riikka" on a blog called "Scripta", run by the current Speaker of the Parliament, Jussi Halla-aho.
I have quite a lot more followers than I did when I first wrote my introduction, so it’s only fair that I’m writing a new one, bump up the major version.
I am Ștefan (ș as sh, I also accept Stephan or the equivalent in your language). I’m 21 years old, ♑, he/him, proud #leftist and soon to graduate CS @ UVABc. Sort of proudly living in #romania. My native language is Romanian, fairly proficient at English, slowly learning #finnish (and #italian).
Tried a lot of programming languages in my childhood up until now, a non-chronological list of ones that stuck with me for one reason or another being: VB6 (that’s what I started on at 8 years old), #pascal (+ #freepascal and #delphi), #perl (+ #raku), #tcl #tcltk, #lisp (usually #scheme, on a good day #elisp #emacslisp and #commonlisp), #elixir, #php, #forth, #lua, #oberon, #modula-2, #cpp #c++, #ocaml, #fsharp, #smalltalk (+ #squeak #pharo #self), #ada, #powershell, #dart, #matlab, #rlang, #zig, #nim, #cobol and #julia. I don’t claim full proficiency in all of these, but I’m familiar enough with these (+ some others not mentioned here) that I could get along just fine with 2 weeks at most of studying and looking through cookbooks and examples). I’m flexible in learning new languages and technologies if needed.
I also do #sudoku and #math for fun (especially functional equations and number theory problems, sometimes calculus and geometric algebra). I am interested in #linguists, #conlangs (#lojban and #esperanto) and #nlp, contemporary (post-‘45, usually post-‘89 for me) history, #balkan history, lower-level stuff (I like to learn about how tools around me work, I’m most interested in #compilers, #emulators and #microcontrollers), #typography and #latex, #linux + #bsd, #msdos, #amiga, #oberon, #plan9, #philosophy, #astronomy (especially in a worldbuilding context) and #philosophy, along with other less notable interests.
I engage in #politics relatively often irl, although I’m not inserting it in absolutely every scenario in my life. As I mentioned, I’m a #leftist and #progressive (or… um… #woke) (Nazis and fascists can have a merry fuck off, DNI with me). I am also a spiritual person, a #deist (if you really want to put it that way, an agnostic, although it’s not quite true) and I find #astrology and #tarot interesting (I’ll let you guess my moon and ascendant, let’s see how close you are).
With that being said, I hope I’m welcome here, you can pick your subset of things that interest you from this list, you have plenty of options. :P Quite a bit longer than last time, but oh well…
I am Jourei, from #Finland, fluent in #finnish #swedish. I almost exclusively post in English. I have no specific topic, I just yell into the void whatever I feel like. I avoid politics and controversy.
So the government got rid of a neo-nazi minister only to get one who is a #groomer as well as a neo-nazi. His ex-girlfriend has shared some messages of him being a Hitler fan boy during his trip to Berlin.
#Estonia too has said it is beefing up security along its border, with Prime Minister Kaja Kallas adding that she was in “close touch” with her Latvian, #Lithuanian and #Finnish counterparts.

When I first arrived in #Finland a million years ago, “sauna” and “perkele” were the only words of #Finnish that I knew. Of course everyone there speaks English, but that didn’t stop me from getting myself into embarrassing situations.
