Sorry my bad, was meant to say nordic countries :/ Out of nordic countries, Iceland has weird language too, but I kinda like it how they name their girls dóttir and it sounds interesting, FIN just sounds like Hungarian to me and they are our neighbours and I don't like their language too much :/
2020-07-25 02:42
Ok men))
2020-07-25 02:59
Icelandic is as close to norse as u can get today
2020-07-25 09:06
Finnish actually has roots with Hungarian, its called Finno-Ugric language group, with Finnish, Estonian and Hungarian and some smaller languages in Karelia and Russian areas. Finnish and Estonian has a lot of similarities and similar words, but Hungarian is very different in words, but the grammar and pronunciation is similar, which is why they do sound similar for foreigners :)

Finland can be part of Scandinavia if it wants to. Swedish is the official language, cultural history similar enough. Even the areas like "the arm" and Åland islands are geographically scandinavia.
2020-07-25 23:41
True. The Official list: Swedish/Norwegian > Danish > Finland (Finland not in Scandinavia but fuck it)
2020-07-26 00:11
Finnish is completely different language, so it is easy to exclude from comparison from scandinavian languages. But you could add finnish swedish which is very clear form of swedish with its own accent and of course also icelandic :) For finns (if you speak swedish) its also easy to communicate with norwegians, but with danish people its like they are speaking swedish with a hot potato in their mouth. :D
2020-07-26 21:56
I dont understand Finnish at all tho??? So how can you understand us?
2020-07-27 00:38
I think you missed the part in brackets, but yea Finland has two official languages Finnish and Swedish, so we do have mandatory swedish in schools, for example I have studied 9 years swedish. But it is rusty af as you never use it. But i'm sure it would quite quickly come out or if I lived in Norway I could quite quickly start to communicate with you guys :)
2020-07-27 11:03
nice. Then it makes sense, since you learned Swedish in school. I have never learnt Finnish in School. And Norwegian/Danish/Swedish is very similar, but Finnish is very different and I dont understand a word.
2020-07-27 21:29
Wtf, why is Swedish an official language of Finland? U guys got owned by Swedes before?
2020-08-02 18:02
We didn't get owned actually, there was just Sweden of which we were a part of. All of the higher education was in Swedish and most of the politics and upper class spoke only Swedish, so it kinda made sense to have 2 official languages. There is still about 10% of finn-swedes whos first language is Swedish, but overall the Swedish is slowly degrading, as we used to have mandatory swedish in school, but that is disappearing, not sure if its already completely optional. But yea, it has made sense in the past, but we are moving away from it. Then again it connects us to our scandinavian brothers, which many of us feel much closer to comparing to our eastern cousins.
2020-08-02 18:14
Wow, thx , good to know. I thought it was like after the conquer of Norman, English nobles started to speak French.
2020-08-02 18:34

Finland is geographically not part of Scandinavia. However, since we're a nordic country we often get labled as Scandinavian anyway.
2020-07-26 13:04
It’s a useless language, however i find it remarkable that we are so few (5.6) million yet so accomplished and recognized.

I hate my own language 7w7 But I Mean why does everyone think Danish sounds wierd, like have you ever heard Finish. Ik it's not tehnically inside the realm of "Scandinavia" rather a Nordic country but still.
2020-07-25 10:57
Finnish is not in the same language family as norwegian, danish and swedish
2020-07-25 22:34
Finnish is easily the weirdest language in the nordic countries as it isn't related to anything except Estonian. The Finnish language actually comes from some central Russian tribes and has literally no connection to any other language in the world appart from Estonian.
2020-07-26 13:10
From the bigger languages also Hungarian, also many smaller languages in Russia, Lapland and the Baltic region.
2020-08-02 17:48
Danish being terrible is universally agreed upon because it's so close to the other Scandinavian languages yet it sounds so weird. Finnish is like completely different so it's hard to compare it to the other languages. Danish sounds like you're trying to speak Norwegian, but have a potato stuck in your throat

2020-07-25 14:26

2020-07-25 14:32
Arabic is quite a beautiful language but it is very, very hard to learn unless you begin at a young age or your parents speak Arabic. It can take an average of 88 weeks just to learn it.
2020-07-25 14:35
Danish was good enough for Hans Christian Andersen, Søren Kierkegaard, Karen Blixen and many more so it is good enough for me. It also is where some awesome words in the English language come from, for example without Danish you would not have Cake, you would not have a day between Wednesday and Friday, there would not be Steaks, wifes would be without their ........ and no one would ... for president, nor would there be a .... to be in.
2020-07-25 15:10
the language its self is fine, its just the way that they talk which many people dont like
2020-07-25 17:05
Sounds a lot better when singing. When talking I understand like 20% even though I have danish relatives lul.
2020-07-25 17:56

2020-07-26 00:05
Not even top 5 education systems in Europe( Estonia top1) , High incomes in the IT section, high crime rates were years ago... Skiing, Rallying, Chess, hunting, wrestling ... ??? General arab mindset.. Let's meet up at the mosque later
2020-07-26 00:15
top 5 education system? hahaha what the fuck are you talking about, your gdp per capita is dogshit, your HDI is dogshit, your murder rates are insane for some reason LMFAO and you are literally completely unknown in everything you just mentioned not to mention why the fuck are you even on a cs:go forum when your irrelevant dogshit country has no scene what so ever apart from a scrawny little kid named ropz with eczema in his entire face. You seem to be very angry at all scandinavians, did they not allow your 3rd world family to enter or what's the deal? stay mad you little post-soviet cuck
2020-07-26 00:18
Check the Pisa tests retard... Most start ups per capita in Tallinn btw. We havr almost double the HDI growing percent so give us some years... Income is low because of the Russian cleaners. Come to Estonia and ask any IT guy with atleast 5 years of experience, they make atleast 5-6k. Chill Ahmed.. Where did I mention I hate scandinavia..? Ya'll are playing with Legos while we are develoling IT unicorns like Skype,Transferwise etc...
2020-07-26 00:28
Start ups that never accomplish anything isnt worth much lmfao and why would you ever mention skype that was literally developed by Janus Friis and Niklas Zennström a danish and a swedish developer LOL. You arent growing faster than the rest of the trash post-soviet countries i mean look at your trash wages: data.oecd.org/earnwage/average-wages.htm Fucking Poland is doing better holy shit
2020-07-26 00:36
The code of Skype was written by Estonian developers Ahti Heinla, Priit Kasesalu and Jaan Tallinn... Russian low class and Beginners are making the wages low. You will experience it when the muslims take over. Startups are making a shit ton of profit.. IT jobs nordic class so back to the mosque
2020-07-26 00:39
Nope it wasnt: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skype They were just working for those that i mentioned LMFAO You develop slower than most of Europe and is one of the poorest countries of Europe LOL You have zero big international companies in any industry all in all a complete waste of space, not to mention your crime rates are even higher than the fucking muslims LOL
2020-07-26 00:46
The skype hq was in Tallinn so? The estonians coded it while the other 2 holded shares in the company. You can't even look at the "Original authors" on the page lmao. 0 internarional companies??? We talking about Skype,Transferwise, Starshil techologies... Name me one Danish it company as big as Skype??? I'll rather leave the space and grow a forest than send muslims there... you have 5%muslims while we have 25% russians, so just wait with the crime rates.. Call us ex soviet, while ya'll surrendered without a shot for the 2 wars... You were lucky af that allies landed in Denmark. Otherwise you would be soviet just like us.
2020-07-26 00:56
Are you unable to read? "Skype was founded in 2003 by Niklas Zennström, from Sweden, and Janus Friis, from Denmark" They used cheap labor coders from estonia to work on their company sure, the same thing that people use Indians and Chinese for, cheap labor. Skype HQ is in Luxemborg, so you got that wrong as well LOL. We have huge companies much bigger than that: Mærsk, Vestas, Novo nordisk, Carlsberg....and the list goes on. 5% muslims to clean our toilets. We have the most strict immigration policy in all of Europe perhaps with the exception of Switzerland, we just keep some of them around for the shitty jobs we don't wonna do. The nazis literally took over your country without even realising it was a country
2020-07-26 01:05
Yes some estonians made alot of whats inside of skype but look at what it got used for and what happened with it... anyway a dane and a swede hire the estonians bcus they see potential in what they have made and make something proper out of it which turns into one of the most popular products today. So yes a dane and a swede made skype the product itself bcus of their vision but yes they used something that had potential that was made by estonians. If i make a product bcus i got a brilliant idea and hire 100 chinese ppl to make it for me... its still me who made it bcus it was my idea.
2020-07-26 13:30
Hireing and being a shareholder is a diffrent thing... The Estonias still made it and it was their idea, but the company belonged to the dane and swede with Estonian shareholds.
2020-07-26 13:34
Skype have never been the estonians idea lol.... They made kazaa and fasttrack but it was failed ideas... janus and niklas bought the right to the stuff and made skype out of it.

It seems to me the dane and the swede took care of the business side of things whereas the estonians created the software as in the product itself. Just because Steve Jobs took credit of everything Apple achieved doesn't make him the creator. First Macintosh was actually work of Steve Wozniak. Jobs was the salesman, the guy who pitched it. As we know the guy couldn't even code. Regardless this discussion is pretty much pointless since Skype is anything but a dead platform at this point. Replaced on its purpose mostly by Microsoft Teams on business and Whatsapp, Snapchat etc. on the social side of things.
2020-08-03 02:55
Doesnt matter how long it lasted or not... there was zero point at that time to even try fight back... government was naive and literally believed hitler wud never invade denmark bcus he said so and so we didnt spend anything on the army who have been pretty shit since 1864... and the fact that there was bomb planes flying above copenhagen rdy to bomb it to stone age (see how it went for warsaw) if we didnt surrender. So fight back for days and lose badly or lose now and no casualties... but even after that we still fought back but just not with the governments help.
2020-07-26 13:38
I understand why they did surrender, and it was a smart idea by the Danish to do so, I just found it ironic that a Dane told an Estonian to just surrender to the Russians already.
2020-07-26 21:41

2020-07-25 22:08
I can not understand it very well. But I'm sure that, if I wanted to, I could learn it somewhat easily (Compared to other languages that is). It is the language of our brothers in the south.

Danish is ok. But compared to other scandinavian accents (languages) it just sounds quite ugly. It is like scandinavian language (norwegian) with german accent. Swedish is the most beautiful followed by norwegian in my opinion.

2020-07-26 00:41
How close would you say Finnish is to Estonian?
2020-07-26 00:41
Like we understand half of the words in a sentence... They are like a far synonym in Estonian. We understand grammar better I think.
2020-07-26 00:44
Finnish and Estonian separated around 2000 years ago. Estonian has changed more and Finnish has been more conservative. From what I've heard Finnish is easier to understand for an Estonian than Estonian is to Finnish.

The danish language as a whole is clearly the worst sounding nordic language. Swedish in particular is much more musical and nice. There is however some nice danish dialects and some ugly swedish ones - just like with the english language. Also beautiful things can be made in an ugly language (H.C.Andersen) and a pretty language can sound pretty awful. Watch video from 1.30 but keep volume down: youtube.com/watch?v=yuPWW3mpA9E
