Finnish is a Dying Language

1 Feb

One of the stinking lies we are supposed to believe about the nation of frauds, liars and petty thieves is, that Finnish is a modern and streamlined language fit for the twenty-first century. This is obviously a ridiculous falsehood. Finnish is a complex, irregular and illogical language. Its written form is very different from spoken dialects, and obviously shows strong influence from German and Swedish, for centuries prestige languages in Finland. Obviously, today’s youths are not able to master all the inflexions and intricacies of the traditional written language. Instead, they prefer their own jargon which in today’s world is inevitably rich in English influences on all levels. Finns take no interest in cultural continuity or literary tradition, not that their literary canon is much to write home about: their novels are mostly marred by a parochial, nationalist outlook. Anyway, the spoken half-English jargon is fast superseding the traditional written language, and the speakers of the jargon are more skilled at expressing themselves in English. Thus, the Finnish language is practically a dead language. When the last speaker of the traditional language dies, only the jargon will prevail, and only in spoken form; English will be preferred for literary and official purposes. Even now, most Finns make a point of being more literate in English than in Finnish.
