I think the real question is whether she would have anything interesting to say.

Well I wasn't expecting a deep and thorough linguistic talk in a hockey board.

And to be honest she didn't really have anything interesting to say. Her accent was interesting though, that's why I remember her.

I dont understand Rauma, i live in the proper Satakunta, not in Estonia.

Dont understand Helsinki these days, i was born in Helsinki but i dont know the new slang.

Helsinki has the same thing going as Stockholm, sounds very gay.

It's nothing new, really, you know. There have been Swedish-speaking people in the city ever since it was established in the 16th century.

Intonation and slang aren't the same thing. Though I'm in the so called "old fart" department these days so I really don't know what the youth is doing there. Slang changes all the time too. There is thousands of words now that I don't know and vice versa.

No offence, I like Helsinki, it's my favourite city in Europe and I like how you guys talk. Keep it up! I mean it sounds better than most of the "romantic" dialects from the provinces.

That not what i ment, i live in the West and our dialect is filled with swedish loans or older proto germanic relics.

I ment the feminine intonation that many have in Helsinki.

I talked to some "redneck" Swedes that said its the same with Stockholm, must be something related to urbanization?

No idea what he was talking about. Then again, plenty of people outside of Stockholm hate us. Damn inbreds

I guess you are watching too much "Big Brother/Salatut Elämät" or some hipster stuff. The "S" is heavy in the area but if you would spend some time in real Helsinki like different districts and suburbans you would think differently. The cameras don't take recordings here though.

Yes, thank you, I figured what you meant. I just tried... nevermind.

I can't claim to understand women, but I've heard that Finnish girls go crazy when you talk to them in foreign languages. You, at least still prefer something that's Finnish. Somewhat.


Though in most cases, it's only the different languages that do the trick. Therefore, I've been developing this pick-up line that simply can't fail:

"Bonjour, senorita formosa. Shall vi gå und göra amore, perkele?"

Found this article about the rising intonation, it is feminine in origin.
