About Finnish
Finnish is a Finnic language spoken mainly in Finland and Sweden, and also in Estonia, Norway and Russia. In 2018 there were 5.7 million speakers of Finnish in Finland, 500,000 of whom spoke Finnish as a second language, and the rest were native speakers. In 2009 there were 201,000 Finnish speakers in Sweden, and in 2010 there were 38,900 speakers of Finnish in Russia, mainly in Leningrad Oblast (province).

Status of Finnish
Until 1809 Finland was a part of Sweden, and Swedish was the official language. From 1863, the Finnish language could be used, along with Swedish, when dealing with authorities. From 1883, civil servants were obliged to use the Finnish language, and to issue documents in Finnish. In 1892, Finnish became an official language, and gained a status comparable to that of Swedish.
Finnish is an official language in Finland, along with Swedish, and is one of the official languages of the EU. Finnish is recognized as a minority language in Sweden, Norway and Russia.

Relationship to other languages
Finnish belongs to the Finnic branch of the Uralic language family. It is classified as belonging to the Northern Finnic group of languages, along with Karelian, Ingrian, Ludic and Veps. Southern Finnic languages include Estonian, Livonian and Votic. Finnish and Karelian are more or less mutually intelligible.

Written Finnish
The earliest known example of written Finnish appeared in a German travel journal dating from about 1450. The first piece of Finnish literature was a translation of the New Testament by Michael Agricola, a Finish bishop, which was published in 1548. He created an orthography for Finnish based on western dialect of Finnish, and Swedish, German and Latin spelling. This orthography has since been revised.

Finnish pronunciation

Finnish pronunciation

• The letters B, C, F, G, Q, W, X, Z and Å are only utilized in names and foreign loanwords
• The letter G appears in native Finnish words in combination with N as ng [ŋ]
• C = [k] when it appears before A, O and U, and [s] when before E, I, Y, ä and ö
• Stress always falls on the first syllable of words.
• Vowels and consonants can be short (written with one letter), or long (written with two letters).
• Finnish has a system of vowel harmony. There are three types of vowels: front vowels (ä, ö, y), back vowels (a, o, u) and neutral vowels (e, i). Front and back vowels cannot co-exist in the same word. Neutral vowels can be used with either of the two other types.
