The Finnish Language
19 Jul 2013 | From Eva of Finland
Finnish is the language spoken by the majority of the population in Finland and by ethnic Finns outside Finland. It is one of the two official languages of Finland (the other being Swedish) and an official minority language in Sweden. Finnish is a member of the Finnic group of the Uralic family of languages. The Finnic group also includes Estonian and a few minority languages spoken around the Baltic Sea.
In the postcard, three Finnish words are written: Aurinkoa is sun, onnea is happiness, iloa is gladness.
