More silent letters - but more logical. In French you can normally guess how an unfamiliar word is said: less exceptions by far :) The English silent letters are more arbitrary, especially if we count in names. Would you thoroughly wrestle an' honestly guess all the subtle silent le''ers in this tough sentence where foreigners ought to acquire the knowledge which witch is the witch which should be dropt? :)

Word "Queue" is just letter Q with bunch of silent letter waiting in line ;)

@Pastori When you say it as G it sounds more close to the actual way to say Q than if you say it as K

I saw some videos of Finnish songs with subtitles, and I'm jealous how efficient the writing is. All the letters seem to make more or less the same sound all the time, and none of them are silent.

Yep, if you see a word in Finnish that you have never seen before or spelled before, you can still say it right the first time because everything is spelled the same way it's written.

Also the stress is usually on the first syllable, so that Helsinki is pronounced HELsinki and not HelSINki (most English speakers mispronounce it the second way).

Finnish double letters are much easier than English silent letters, as they are way more consistent, and once you get the muscle memory down in your head it's super easy. They're simply an extended version of the letter, if there are two letters, simply take the letter's sound and extend it twice as long. If the letter has a "pop"-like kinda sound like T/P/K, you simply hold your tongue before making the pop sound for a moment. If the letter has a "humming"-like sound before the pop like B/D, you hold the humming sound for a moment and then do the pop. It seems complex, but it's actually very simple, and with just a few days of practice you can get it down really quickly!

I’m a native English speaker and I can actually relate to this as I thought the same thing when I was learning how to read and write....it was a constant “WTF...why?” And now after learning another language that “WTF why?” Has become even bigger because I can really see now how absurd English spelling is.

more unnessesary things in English language - Indefinite Articles: a and an a = used before word that starts with vowel an = used before word that starts with consonant ...they use it, so that they would know is the word starting with vowel or consonant? ...but you have to know which it is before you can choose the article anyway. So why bother?

Most languages are more rediculous with articles. English is so easy compared to them. Take German for example, you have ein, eine, einer, einem and they are used in different circumstances and in different ways. For definite articles, you have der, die, das, dem, den, and I think one other one. English is so easy.

That actually exists because of pronunciation reasons. It's easier for the natives to combine two vowels with a consonant, which is why you use aN before a word that starts with a vowel. For the ones starting with a consonant you don't need it anymore. Try to pronounce *a hour* (where the H is silent) and *an machine* (where you have two consonants one after another) out loud and then pronounce them according to the rule and you'll see the difference.

@Bror I guess you just decided to ignore my parethesis, huh? I am not from Finland and I can neither speak nor write in Finnish. If my misspelled finnish abbreviation of the number 26 somehow offended you.... Too bad. Good call on the "fins" part though. I left out an "n" by accident.

"Kakskytyks" is just colloquial Finnish; abbreviated words, not silent letters.

Vuosi sitten
Joni Hanski
Joni Hanski

Spoken Finnish uses different rules to some extent. Words are shortened in many cases, and the way you conjugate words is a bit different, in favor of making the words shorter. It's not really about silent letters, it's that Finnish has spoken variant of word "kaksi" that's "kaks", spoken variant of "kymmentä" that's "kyt", and spoken variant of kuusi "kuus". The guideline is that when speaking, it's more important that forming words is easy and fast, but in writing, it's expected that the writer spends extra effort to make the text easy to read, so written language has features that are essentially discarded when speaking because of the tradeoff between ease of forming sentences vs comprehending them is scaled differently. You can write "kakskytkuus", and you can say "kaksikymmentäkuusi", but when speaking, you're usually just using the short version, and if you wrote that down, there's expectation of making it easier to read by using the full version rather than saving some letters.

No need to give up. Just learn the regular patterns, and the silent letter words and irregular pronounciation you learn one by one. Many of them are loan words from some other language to English. Like pizza. There they don't say the z like normally. A drunken pisser might call himself pizzer. Just pick first those you think important. The rest, when they come along. And you will likely not need to learn them all.
