Artificial Language Budinos for the Finno-Ugric Peoples

In my article The Modern Proto-Ugric language, I spoke about the need for the Artificial Finno-Ugric language. At that time, I hadn’t heard about Budinos constructed language designed by to be an international auxiliary language for speakers of Finno-Ugric languages. Budinos builds mainly on Udmurt and Hungarian but also has features from FinnishEstonianMari, and other related languages. According to the philologist and author-journalist Aleksei Arzamatov, the practical father of the language, there are currently around 100 Budinos experts worldwide.

Don’t Ever Stop Loving Yourself

Death

My sun is shining on you
Whom people hate
Like they hate me.
Our destiny is to exist
Even nobody likes us.
Still, without you and me
The world wouldn’t
Be perfect.

I hope that the poem above serves as an introduction to what I will say below. Nobody can be someone else.

Dear Readers I am all right

Don’t feel sorry for me but help those who are now in the group mangle.  I use myself and my experiences to make the subject alive.

Diversity Makes Perfect

My whole life has been very challenging for me. It has been challenging for others, too, because they have often found something to blame me. Because I had been the only odd in the group, I started to think something was wrong with me. To improve things, I have tried to change myself into something else. Now, at 70, I have finally realized that it is impossible and unnecessary. In a nutshell: Diversity makes perfect.

The fault lies with the accused and the prosecutor

You may wonder why I am saying that the blamed one has also done something wrong automatically. Yes, the blamed one has forgotten to defend and love himself. The reasons for that mechanism vary greatly. This range of reasons makes analyzing problem situations difficult and often even impossible. Moreover, there is always more than one person who are making analyzes.

The Key to the Door of Clarity

The key to the door of clarity is inside every individual. If somebody’s behavior irritates you, you must look at yourself in the mirror. Most likely, the same things don’t annoy others. If you are the blame, you must look around and compare how people generally take up you. In most cases, this method is enough to give a tool to protect yourself.

01-Strange-Rooster-by-Yelling-Rosa-22-08-02.jpg
This rooster loves himself even though he doesn’t want to bully the hens. He went to the farmer and asked him to let him be himself. The farmer was a lovely man, and now our rooster doesn’t have to be a teaser any more. The hens have also started to accept him. Why don’t you do the same thing?

Was Jesus a Bad Person

Sometimes, as happened to me, most people found faults and shortcomings in me. I didn’t know anything else than try to make myself better me. Even though I made progress, people found something to say about my acts and behavior. The situation has been like this almost up here where I am now. Now I realize that the reason for the blames is my inner personality. It doesn’t appeal to most people. Even now, when I think I have made wrong conclusions and must keep educating myself, I tell myself that even Jesus fell into the clutches of men.

Why People Don’t Get along with Each Other

People are small group animals. That’s why they build the groups around them. The group members isolate the unsuitable persons from the circle. In borderline cases, the group tries to train the individual so that she would be suitable after being brainwashed. In families, retraining is necessary because an unsuitable individual is entitled to join the group based on her bloodline.

The Family Is Worst

The biggest dramas are born in families because we can not pan the unsuitable member. The discriminated members submit to their fate or start to fight for their rights. Both of these options are risky. Submission almost inevitably leads to mental breakdowns, even suicides, and fighting can lead to violence. Of course, sometimes, the result can be positive. The other family members start to respect the fighter, and they see that we must treat the depressed member gently.

I have tried to fight, but all my new solutions were the reason to blame me more. My aggression is proof of my ineligibility. After that, parallel fighting, I try to be a better person than I am. As I already mentioned, nothing has changed. Even so, not very long ago, after explaining my exceptional sensitivity by letter, the receiver said I was bragging to him. Shortly, even this state of better self-understanding is not acceptable.

Going on All Alone

After fighting against the windmills for almost 70 years, I have decided to live alone or only with those whose company I enjoy and vice versa. Now and then, I find myself guilty about the state of my life. Then I say to myself you tried 70 years only to understand that you can’t be anything than yourself. If someone doesn’t feel comfortable in my company, that’s their concern, as I greatly like myself.

For Others

You can get out of the circle because of different reasons. The most important thing is that you never stop loving yourself. Of course, some people must improve their behavior after committing crimes. But many crimes can prevent in advance when we love ourselves in time. Because more than one person is blaming the one who is not suitable for the group, the isolated person must be in balance with herself. If you need to make yourself better, make your love stronger.

I have seen many bloggers thinking about proving themselves or the neighborhood, perhaps both. Sometimes this might be the key to the door of clarity, but don’t try this too long. I tried to be someone else for almost 70 years. Now, I don’t have much time to wander on earth when I am in balance. Sometimes I am unfortunate because of this loss but happy that I have seen the light. And most of everything, I hope that everyone else could be their whole lives themselves or if they are in the mangle, they get through earlier than me.

Dear Readers I am all right

Don’t feel sorry for me but help those who are now in the group mangle.  I use myself and my experiences to make the subject alive.


The Codependent One

It is good
That you are not human.
People would say
That you are codependent.
And I should take you to the therapist
To learn to be independent.
Sometimes you could talk less,
When we’re at the butcher shop
Because I know you only eat
The best quality minced meat.

Last night in the park
It was good when you meowed a few times.
That made her stop and say:
“It’s convenient when you talk to yourself.
Never feels alone”.
And even better
When your head came out of my jacket.
It gave me a chance to respond:
“I do not speak to myself but to my cat.”

Then the three of us lived happily ever after.
Yes, you were jealous whenever I sat with her
But happy we all three were, weren’t we.

Finns and Italians Love Vowels; Suomen ja italian kielen sanoja joilla on sama kirjoitusasu

Although Finnish and Finnish words resemble each other, the languages do not sound alike. The lack of similar sounding is because in Finnish, the word stress is always on the first syllable and words are rarely in the basic form when different prefixes and suffixes are added to word bodies.

However, when sung, the Finnish language comes closer to Italian when heard. In the video, Finnish singer-songwriter Juha Tapio performs his song Kaksi puuta (Two Trees).

The table below shows some Finnish and Italian words with the exact spelling but different meanings. The two languages also have many words with precise spelling and meaning. These are so-called cultural words; sometimes, it’s about something as ordinary as a ananas (pineapple)  that we have in common. Other examples are biologia, filologia, filosofia, Italia, laboratorio, litania, liturgia, melodia, Napoli, numero, prisma, rapsodia, teologia and teoria.

Alla olevasta taulukosta näet joitakin suomen ja italian kielen sanoja, joilla on sama kirjoitusasu, mutta eri merkitys. Näissä kahdessa kielessä on myös paljon sanoja, joilla on sama kirjoitusasu ja merkitys. Nämä ovat niin sanottuja sivistyssanoja, joskus on kyse niinkin tavallisesta asiasta kuin ananas, joka on meille yhteistä, muita esimerkkejä: biologia, filologia, filosofia, Italia, laboratorio, litania, liturgia, melodia, Napoli, numero, prisma, rapsodia, teologia, teoria.

A Runaway Hero

The madman got on the bus.
He tried so hard to hide his madness,
That it already looked crazy.
He got off the bus
Many stops before the hospital,
But didn’t make anyone think
That he is not a resident of the sanatorium.

The following day a mental hospital nurse
Came to my cabin and asked if I had seen a person
Whose characteristics match the man I saw on the bus.
The nurse gave me a pack of cigarettes
And urged me to offer smoke to him.
Then he will sit down
And tells his dark story
As long as there are
Cigarettes.
Meanwhile phone us
And we got plenty
Of time to come
And catch him.

The runaway hero didn’t make it to ten
Smoke before the staff
Drove a car in my yard
The nurse told me
That the patient was unauthorized
On a bus trip also,
But returned himself
To the hospital.

This is a true story from the sixties of a runaway hero who wasn’t dangerous but a pain in the butt of the mental institution. Our hero searched for cigarettes, and the nurse thought he would come to my summer cottage first because it was next to the hospital.

Ett litet brev av längtan; A Little Letter of Longing; Kirje kaipauksen

Det är sant att du hade ett hårt liv,
men en sak du har haft mera än jag.
Du hade möjlighet att leva
i ditt fosterland, i Karelia,
varifrån min hela släkt jakades bort
av den röda brutala armén,
samma armé som vandaliserar
i Ukraina idag.

Jag skall aldrig finna fred för min själ
som snart återkomma hem i Karelia.
Kanske vi kan hålla varandra sällskap
och promenerar tillsammans
vid stranden av Finska viken,
plockar upp smultron i skogen
som min mamma gjorde.

Och en vacker dag ska vi gå till Petersburg, eller hur,
var min mormor född och visiterar
utanför hennes skola, kanske samma skol
som du har gått på.
Mellantid när jag är still på väg
du kan sitta på din trädgårdssoffa
och solar sig med ett litet brev
av längtan i barmen.

A Little Letter of Longing

You indeed had a hard life,
But one thing, you have had more than me.
You had the opportunity to live
In your homeland, in Karelia,
From where my whole family was chased away
By the brutal red army,
The same military that vandalizes
In Ukraine today.

I shall never find peace for my soul
That will soon return home to Karelia.
Maybe we can keep each other company
And walk together on the shores of the Gulf of Finland,
Picking up strawberries in the forest
Like my mother did.

And one day we’ll go to Petersburg, won’t we,
Where my grandmother was born
And visit outside her school,
Maybe the same school
You have attended.
Meanwhile when
I’m still on the road
You can sit on your garden sofa
And bask with a little letter
Of longing in the bosom.

I have read Edith Södergran’s poems all my life because I have experienced her as my kindred spirit. In my poem, “Ett litet brev av längtan” I refer to Edith’s ballad “En önskan” where she talks about her dream, just one small letter. Of course, it is my interpretation the letter speaks about the longing for a soulmate. Besides, I have not made my conclusion based only on that poem but on her entire production.

En önskan

A Wish

Av hela vår soliga värld

From our sunny world

önskar jag blott en trädgårdssoffa

I want only a garden sofa

där en katt solar sig …

where a cat basks…

Där skulle jag sitta

There I would sit

med ett brev i barmen,

with a letter by my breast,

ett enda litet brev.

a tiny, short letter.

Så ser min dröm ut…

Such is my dream…

Edith Södergran

Kerstin Andersson recites a poem “En önskan”.

Edith Södergran

Edith Irene Södergran (4 April 1892 – 24 June 1923) was a Swedish-speaking Finnish poet who lived and died in the village of Raivola on the Karelian Isthmus. The village of Raivola is very close to the spa town of Terijoki, where my family had a summer villa. Read more about Edith.

Karelia became part of the Soviet Union in 1944. The Soviet Union invaded Finland in 1939.

The monotony of one truth

Here in Finland, many influencers have said there is only room for one fact at a time. However, I’m afraid I have to disagree. I think the world can only fit one lie at a time, which gains a foothold by repeating it endlessly. Lately, the world has always been one rainbow to such an extent that you might think there are no heterosexuals in this world. When we forget facts, truths lose their meaning.

We simplified bullying to a level where only nasty bullies persecute good individuals. This simplification has resulted in reverse bullying. In television programs, school bullies are called idiots and incite contempt toward the bullies. The promulgators of these insults completely forget that the bullies are almost always bullied. They learn to tease because someone has teased them. The most important thing has not even received a secondary role in simplifying the causes of bullying. We live in a competitive society where rising above others is considered a desirable endeavor. No matter how positive their gifts are, elevating the few above the rest is frowned upon by people outside the podium.

This glorification of the most successful individuals is both short-sighted and unfair. The truth is that the individual has not done anything to have some glorified qualities, such as good looks, an accurate ear for music, lots of fast muscles, and so on. Humans get their natural gifts at birth. It has been studied, for example, that a person can increase his running speed by a maximum of 10 percent through his efforts. On the other hand, you can’t get an absolute pitch by practicing, but it comes in mother’s milk if it is to come.

Yhteinen moderni kantaurali; The Modern Proto-Uralic Language

The English version of this article after the Finnish version

Helka Riionheimo,
Suomen kielen professori
Itä-Suomen yliopisto

Ilkka Pakarinen,
Kirjoittelija,
Lapin maakunta

Hei,

Haluaisin tietää, onko suomalaiset ja suomensukuiset kielitieteilijät ajatelleet kehittää yhteistä kieltä kaikille ugrilaisille kansoille. Monet sukukielet ovat kuolemassa ja samalla sukukansojemme kulttuuri.

Israelissa elvytettiin jo kuollut hebrean kieli ja se elää kukoistuksen kautta. Tämä oli siellä tietysti välttämätöntä, koska juutalaisilla ei ollut yhtä valtakieltä, josta pystyi rakentaa identiteettiä.

Tietysti modernin kantauralin kehittäminen olisi haasteellista, koska esimerkiksi unkarin kieli on kulkeutunut hyvin kauas itämerensuomalaisista kielistä. Tämän tosiasian vuoksi yhteinen kieli voisi jakaantua kahteen linjaan moderniin kantauralin ja modernin kantasuomen kehittämisiin.

Tietysti monet pienten kielikuntien puhujat vastustavat tällaista ajatusta, mutta jos ollaan rehellisiä, niin oman identiteetin löytyminen tällaisen kielen kautta olisi varminta. Jos ajatellaan esimerkiksi karjalan kieltä, se on kieli, johon on sekoittunut venäjän kieltä, suomen kieli on ruotsin kielen ja viro saksan kielen saastuttamaa jne. Mitä omaa tällainen on?

Kaikkiin kieliin tietysti tulee sanoja toisista kielistä, mutta silti suomalais-ugrilaiset kielet ovat rakenteellisesti muuttuneet vuosituhansien aikana yllättävän vähän. Näin tätä kannattaa miettiä.

Terveisin

Uralic-speaking world

There are over 23 million people who speak the Ugric languages.
The most remarkable groups are Hungarians, over 14 million, Finnish, around 5.5 million, and Estonians, over 1 million.

In English

This is a letter to professor Helka Rionheimo:

Hi,

I would like to know whether Finnish linguists have considered developing a common language for all Ugric peoples. Many tribal languages ​​are dying, and at the same time, the culture of our tribes.
 
The already dead Hebrew language was revived in Israel and is living through prosperity. To wake up in Hebrew was necessary because the Jews did not have a single language from which to build an identity.

Of course, developing a modern proto-language would be challenging because Hungarian, for example, has moved very far from the Baltic Finnic languages. Because of this, linguists could divide the common language into developing lines in the modern proto-Uralic and proto-Finnic development.

Of course, many speakers of minor languages ​​oppose such an idea, but to be honest, finding one’s own identity through such language would be a guarantee. If we think of the Karelian language, for example, it is a language mixed with Russian, Swedish has contaminated Finnish, German has contaminated Estonian, etc. What is this?

Of course, words from other languages ​​will appear in all languages, but Finno-Ugric languages ​​have changed surprisingly little over the millennia. The standard modern Finno-Ugric language is something to consider for all Ugric people.

Origin of the Finns, Hungarians and other Uralians

 

One-minute lecture: Why is the number of Finno-Ugric peoples decreasing?

Read the Estonian World article about the subject. This article tells that Finno-Ugric peoples are the indigenous people of Europe. Before the migration period, Finno-Ugric languages were the main languages in Eastern Europe. The linguistic relations between all Finno-Ugric peoples were discovered by the Hungarian scholar, János Sajnovics (1733-1785).

Flirting cow

You may be wondering why I have given such a name to my image. When my uncle took the picture in the fifties, most Finnish people worked in agriculture and lived in the countryside. In winter, young couples met secretly in barns, and in summer, under the sky. On the other hand, the cow in the picture has a seductive look.


The Poem’s Hero

The poem’s hero is searching for a friend who could love him. I think he is talking to someone who has given him hope but not a certainty yet.
