    My parents are both Finnish and when I studied where the language came from I believe it was Hungary. It's a very unique harsh difficult to learn language. Luckily i was taught young but I still butcher it very much.
    Going to Finland and then going to Sweden they dont seem alike at all. Sweden is a very cosmopolitan place taking in people from all over the world for a long time. Finns are very much into keeping outsiders out. I spent a couple of summers in Finland and what I remember was they love to drink heavily. They dont like small talk. And the women are amazing.

    Hungarian is one of the world’s most distinct and difficult languages. From what I understand, the only relative comparables are Turkish and Finnish, and has its roots in Sanskrit.

    This is accurate, some parts of Finland are part of Scandinavia actually.

    Ylönen says his goal is to make the NHL roster in September 2020 (dev camp interview). Good luck to him in Finland this year!

    That was my understanding as well. Finnish is a language apart though. The others have a similarity to them that can be followed to a degree.

    East of Ural mountains is where it appears more have Asiatic features than let's say the European area of Russia.

    That's a very interesting evolution and very curious as how that happened.

    I missed estonian in there. I’m not a linguist but I think sanskrit is the root of a ton of languages.

    I'm not so sure about this pseudo-scientific baloney about "Mongolian" and whatnot. You should look at recent genetic anthropology if you want to figure which crowds and tribes travelled where and when and what then. (As if that means something now but anyway.)

    We (you too?) Finns are now a pool of roughly 65% ["west of"] Uralic, 25% Scandinavian, 10% some continental European stuff. You have to make another calc for Russians because it's obvious the Slavic Indo-European tribes are not Uralic.

    Maybe I misunderstood your point completely but your run-on sentences don't help.

    Puljujarvi has strong Lizard People features. So what? It's so much individual happenstance. And any "features" are so in the eye of the beholder.

    AFAIK Turkish is unrelated to Hungarian, the superficial similarities are just for proximity and cultural contact through all the (not often peaceful) back and forth with the Ottoman Empire. Hungarian is as close to Finnish/Estonian as English is to Farsi, but still the only "cousin" in Europe. Many obviously older words (more basic concepts) have the same roots.

    Basque, now there's a weirdo. Never been connected to any other European language.

    Sanskrit, Latin and friends aren't root languages, they're steps on the way, some way better recorded than others. (Call them milestones then.) Languages spoken by the actual peoples they a-kept evolvin' all the time.

    (A very basic starting point in any General Linguistics 101: written language is important and useful data, but speech has always been the primary, more important form of language where all the stuff actually happens. Recorded language has been put a snapshot of each point in time. [This may change with our modern prevalence of mostly written everyday comms.] You probably learned to listen and speak before you learned to read and write, so did mankind, haha. If this even needed to be pointed out, so just sayin' anyway.)

    Good insight! Turkish - hungarian relations make the similarities make sense. I noticed them but I guess it’s similar to english and french borrowing terms.

    And that's a good catch too. French is deep down not so close to the (Germanic) English, but they have had extensive borrowing. Might be William the Conqueror in 1066 to blame and the next decades when French was not just mandatory for court but prestigious among the elite in England. And all the later stuff, good and bad.

    Ylonen has clear scandianvian features but his sligther frame and his elongated face brings us to asia or Europe.

    Saw that he was listed on the 2nd line for today's exhibition game.

    He doesn't play anything like Eller though. He's got a much better shot and he's more of an offensive player although I didn't see Eller in the SHL at 19 and I don't recall if I saw him in the AHL at 20 with the blues farm team.
