  • That's correct. The English y whereas is equivalent to Finnish j, at least when it's pronounsed like in the word 'you', and sometimes to Finnish i.

  • It may bear mentioning that y in Finnish is a vowel, equivalent to German ü, French u. This word is like whalesong.

  • This is a word that even the Finns consider as a bit odd. No one ever uses it because it means something about 'wedding night intuition', but the children think it's funny because it has so many vowels in a row.
