* 'ae' is a letter called "'a' with two dots" pronounced 'a' as in 'cat'
* 'oe' is a letter called "'o' with two dots" pronounced similar to the
*     very beginning of a word 'early'
* Otherwise the words are pronounciated as they are written.

vittu - fuck (Lit. cunt) *
perkele/saatana - satan, devil, demon *
helvetti - hell *
  (Above words are not a direct insult - the most widely used swear word
   in Finnish.  Example of a situation in which the word might be
   uttered is when one has been hurt.  Usually preceded by a word
   "voi" which is roughly translated as "oh" in English.  "Oh fuck!"
   and "Voi vittu!"  should  be  rather close to each other.)

vittupaeae - (Lit. cunthead)
kusipaeae - pisshead
paskiainen - bastard
idiootti - idiot, moron
noertti - nerd, geek
paska - shit
hintti/homo = gay
huora = whore
mulkku  = dick
paskahousu = shitpants
pillu   = vittu (cunt)
suksi vittuun - fuck off (Lit. ski into a cunt)
heitae, homo, volttia - go jump in a lake
Maentti. (a w dotts) = Jerk
Paessi. (a w dotts) (direct=goat) = Jerk/stupid
Jumaltauta. There is no translation for this in English
                but it's used kuje vittu, perkele.
                You can't insult others with this. Use it
                like perkele (devil) and helvetti (hell)
Perse. = Ass.
Persereikae. (a w dotts) = asshole. (reikae=hole)
You can call someone as:
'Puusilmae' (a w dotts) Direct translation would be
                        something like Wood Eye.:-)
                        I know it doesn't make any "sence"
                        but it has got meaning of insult.
Nuija = (direct would be club) = jerk

Those words above are the main 'building blocks' of insulting sentences.
You can do combinations or write multiple words after each other. For 
example, "Idiootti paskiainen" and "Vitun kusipaa" are
quite valid Finnish swear words. An example of a
'stacked' swear word is: "Voi helvetin saatanan vitun
paskiainen!", which is quite a heavy insult. The longer,
       the prettier. :-)

Note that in these two last examples there were words 'helvetin',
'saatanan' and 'vitun'. They are derived from the basic forms 
above by applying the Finnish genetive. Those three words could 
be translated as hell's, satan's and cunt's, but in English this 
seems rather meaningless.

Suksi vittuun - Ski into a cunt

Vedae vittu paeaehaen - Draw a cunt over your head

Ime munaa, runkkari - Suck cock, wanker

Jaevlar (lit: something to do with the devil)
Satan (lit: something to do with satan)
Helvete (lit: something to do with hell)
Fan (lit: something to do with the devil)

These can be combined (stacked?) into a sentence like "Dra aat helvete, 
ditt satans jaevla fittsvin" which of course is (lit): "Go to hell, you 
satan devil cunt pig". Not beautiful, but it's a way of communicating 

Normal amiericanisation is applied, so "mammaknullare" is of course
"motherfucker". When i last listened to some 12 year olds, the swearword
used was "Fuck". Must be due the fact that we subtitle american movies...

sug min kuk - suck my dick
dra aat helvete - fuck you (Lit. go to hell)
jaevla roevhaal - fucking asshole (lit. devil asshole)
knulla - fuck (Knulla do mostly represent the sexual activity, not 
often used as a swear word unless its a sexual activity that is 
sweared about. A kid using his Nintendo often screams "knulla" 
as a sign of disappointment when he loses a game. Don't ask me why.
kuk - dick
fitta - cunt

- - - - -

a = a in hat, cat
e = e in very, let

An a with a ring on top (written as aa in "aat" and "haal" is 
pronounced  eau
An a with two dots on top (written as ae in "jaevlar") is 
 pronounced = air
An o with two dots on top (written as oe in "roev) is
 pronounced = learn
All characters are always pronounced, i e "helvete" is 
 "hell" + vet" + "eh"

* Phonetics:
* letter 'a' is normally pronounced like the english phoneme 'ah'
* letter 'e' is 'eh'
* ':' is used to show long vowels like 'ah:'
* "'" is placed after the syllable which should have the emphasis

Obviously, swear words are used by different kinds of people, and in
different situations.  'Up north' the people are much better at creating
really creative new compound swearwords, while people living in Oslo's
West End would consider anything worse than a meek 'fillern' as 
incredibly vulgar :-)

drittsek - shitbag

( Directed at life in general, after banging your finger with a hammer )
fillern ’feel'ehrnŚ - oops (rather mild swear-word)
faen ’fah:ehnŚ - the devil
  (Alternative spelling/pronunciation: Fan ’Fah:nŚ, Fankern ’FahnkehrnŚ
  Somewhat stronger. Used like the derivates of 'fuck' in the US,
  suitably as an adverb or adjective in many situations :-)

Helvete ’Heh:l'veh theŚ - Hell (Strong, but not uncommon. Used as 'Faen')

( Comments about people )
Drittsekk ’Dreettt saeckŚ - Shitbag (Fairly mild)
Rasstapp ’rahss tahppŚ - Ass tap (or ass 'faucet', I guess)
Rasshol ’rahss hoe:lŚ (The 'o' should have a slash across it) - Asshole

( Stronger personal comments, use at own risk )
( Norwegian vikings still knows how to beat your brains out :-)
Fitte ’Feett'ehŚ Cunt
Pikk ’Peeck'Ś - Dick
Kukk ’coock'Ś - Cock
(The vowel can be incredibly long when pronunced by a northerner)

In southern Norway, the following "soft" sayings are considered 
 very strong:
kjaere folk - dear people
kjaere deg - dear you


wakara pundek - I want to fuck your sister
