Casinos supporting Finnish language

The Finnish language, spoken by approximately 5 million people across Northern Europe, Russia, and Canada, is several centuries old. The first known example of the use of this language appears during the mid-16th century in the translation of the New Testament.

Finland was a part of Sweden when the language was first invented. When the countries split in the early 19th century both Finnish and Swedish were used as the formal languages of Finland. It wasn't until the 1890s that Finnish became the official language for the country, though Swedish is still commonly spoken to this day.

The letters used in the Finnish language are based on the internationally used Latin characters A to Z in both upper and lower-case forms. It contains the 26 letters of the American alphabet as well as repeats of the letters A and O with diphthongs. Some constants, like b, g, and q, are utilized only when foreign loanwords are used. The use of vowels is layered into front and back vowels (a, o, u, y) and neutral vowels (e, i). Front and back vowels cannot be used in the same word.

When spoken, the first syllable of Finnish words is always emphasized.
