Yeah our slang has a mixture of Russian words. It's weird, but thats the way it is lol

Hmmm...Finnish is such an interesting and pretty language. Even the insults sound good. I can remember dongarit because it is similar to dungarees which comes from the Aussie word for denim pants or jeans.
Maija_22maija_22 on March 22nd, 2012 09:38 pm (UTC)
Lol my friends often laugh at the Finnish word for...well I don't know if I can say any bad words but look up "Paska" it sounds like the english word for "Pasta" xD

Maija, this is great, I have loaded byki on my laptop to try and learn finnish and often use google translator and the translator on facebook and quite often words are not able to be translated which makes it difficult to communicate with people.... i have quite a few finnish FB friends and hate that I often have no idea whats being said.... ill copy this list and am sure to use it.... add more if u think of any. Oh yeah and here in Australia, sh*t isnt even considered a 'bad word' ...lol ... but from now on, i'll say 'paska' just for the fun of it...hehehehe
