  • "Not the least of Finland's delicious strangeness is the language, a non-European tongue related only to Estonian and some small Siberian languages. Devilishly complicated with more than 14 noun cases ('14, 15, 18 - no one even knows how many there are,' Jukka laughs), it reminds you of the arbitrariness of language (no verb 'to have', no gender) and I'm not the only one to hear in its sharp consonant sounds, all K's, T's and S's, the forming and cracking of ice on the water."
