Useful information about the Finnish language
The Finnish language is closely related to Estonian and is the second official language in Finland, along with Swedish. In Sweden, Finnish is recognised as a minority language and is spoken by about 300,000 people. There are also small Finnish-speaking minorities in Estonia and in the Russian part of Karelia, as well as some native Finnish speakers in Finnmark in northern Norway.
Finnish is one of the Finno-Ugric languages and is mainly characterised by the absence of grammatical gender and by the low number of consonants amongst its phonemes. Other special features of Finnish include the agglutinative language structure and 15 cases.
A Finnish national consciousness in all social classes, and thus a sense of their own language, did not arise until 1809 in the Grand Duchy under the Russian tsars, because before then Swedish was the dominant language in Finland. At that time, Finnish slowly developed into a cultural language, and 20 years later the educated upper class worked intensively on the development of Finland from a peasant language to a cultural language. From the mid-19th century, they began to speak Finnish increasingly in the school system as well, and by the turn of the century, a Finnish-speaking segment of the population had developed. Fifty years on, the development of Finnish into a fully-fledged cultural language, as it is spoken today, was completed.
