Encyclopedia > Finnish language spoken

This article deals with features of the spoken Finnish language, specifically how it is spoken in Greater Helsinki capital region. This applies also to other cities, such as Vaasa, where the regional dialect has been supplanted by "generic Finnish" due to large number of people moving in from other regions. It will only make limited sense without the information contained in the Finnish language phonetics and Finnish language grammar pages.
