Estonian – basic information
- Eesti keel is a member of the Finno-Ugric group, which is a branch of the Uralic language family. As a separate entity, the Estonian language began to emerge in the 12th-13th centuries (the oldest written records date to this period) as a mixture of a few Baltic-Finnic languages (of all modern languages, it is most closely related to Finnish). In the later stages of its development, Estonian was influenced lexically by the Baltic, Slavic and, primarily, Germanic languages (ca. 30% of Estonian vocabulary is of Germanic origin). In the latter half of the 19th century, the present orthographic norms, based on Finnish orthography, were adopted.
- Modern Estonian is divided into two major dialect groups: the north and south dialects, which exhibit significant differences. The north group includes the central dialect, which gave rise to the standard variety of Estonian. Eesti keel is now regulated by the Tallinn-based Institute of the Estonian Language.
- Estonian is one of the official languages of the European Union.

- Estonian is an agglutinative language, in which morphemes are suffixed to word stems to form new words or word forms. Semantically, such a word corresponds to several words in most Indo-European languages.
- An excellent example of the above phenomenon is the longest Estonian word, which consists of 43 letters: sünnipäevanädalalõpupeopärastlõunaväsimatus. It means “the tiredness felt on the afternoon of the weekend birthday party”.
- There are as many as 14 noun cases in Estonian (though the actual number is the subject of dispute among researchers). However, this language does not have grammatical gender and features two tenses: present and past. Present tense forms are used to express futurity.
- Estonian consonants and vowels have three degrees of length (short, middle-long, and long) which are distinctive.
- Another interesting feature of Estonian pronunciation is the high frequency of vowels, which sometimes occur in sequences. Sample words with multiple vowels include kõueöö (Eng. thunderstorm night) and jäääär (Eng. ice edge).
