Whoot, what better welcome back than in Finnish (It still fascinates me that the sum of individual words is not the same as the sentence that comes out )

Hi Luna! We're not finished missing you yet, so can you please go away and come back later?

What do you mean? Like, because we don't use separate words for words like "for", or...?

According to google translate 'ei' means 'not' and 'ole' means 'no', but in a sentence it is translated as 'it is not'. What logic does a standard translater lack?

No one ever wants to court a warthog, though a warthog does her best.

Well, m'dearest, Google is lying to you

"Ei" means "no", and "ole" is the imperative form (actually, in this case probably some other form, the singular 3rd person or whatever (I'm not a linguist )) of "olla", which means "to be" or "to exist" or stuff like that. "Ei ole" is, as the translation says, "it is not".

If it makes any more sense, in 'complete' the sentence "it is not" would be "se ei ole" ("se" being "it"), but it's not actually used like that (it would be again 'natural' if it were "sitä se ei ole" which would mean "that it is not" (that as in being dead))...

Wow, I managed to turn a two-word sentence into something rather complicated

Well, if you need any more Finnish and then Finnish made horribly complicated, just ask!

Sure! Though I have to warn you - I'm an awful teacher (As previous post suggests )

Or:

Toki! Minun täytyy tosin varoittaa - olen todella huono opettaja (Kuten edellisestä viestistä näkyy)
