CFF: Talk on the Finnish Language

Did you know that the word   “äiti” is not of Finnish ori­gin, but that it is a bor­rowed word? But from where was it bor­rowed, and when? Aija Elg, will dis­cuss (in Eng­lish) loan words in Finnish and the rela­tion­ship of Finnish to other languages.

Date: Sun­day, April 22, 2012
Time: 2pm
Loca­tion: Scan­di­na­vian Com­mu­nity Cen­tre
Cost: Admis­sion $10 includes refresh­ments.
Con­tact: Dianne Kil­back by dkilback@nulltelus.net

The talk will explore the roots of the Finnish lan­guage, and what Finnish words tell us about the his­tory of the Finns and the peo­ple they have met.

Aija will also look at what kind of new words are being inte­grated into the Finnish lan­guage today and ask whether Finnish should be “pro­tected” from the influ­ence of other languages?

Aija Elg is the Vis­it­ing Lec­turer of Finnish Lan­guage and Cul­ture at the Uni­ver­sity of Washington.

Here is the flyer for this event.
