Origins of the Finnish language and accent

English in Finnish accent voiceover talent agency

Finland used to be part of the Kingdom of Sweden until around the 13th century. It then became part of the Russian Empire, apart from Northern Sweden which became the Grand Duchy of Finland. By 1917 Finland had gained its independence and in 1995 it joined the European Union.

There has been some discussion over the origin of the Finnish language. Some linguists believe speakers were present in the Comb-Ceramic period of 4000BC and that by the second millennium BC the language had a Balkan influence. However, other linguists state that the language arrived in Finland around 2000 BC or later, in the Bronze Age. Although all agree that the Finnish language began to change and mould itself into Finnish during the Iron Age.

Artefacts found in Finland suggest the presence of Swedish and Norwegian people. There were settlers who came to Finland from Sweden and they spoke Old Norse before the 13th century, as it was the language of the Scandinavian countries. Over the years Sweden waged wars against many countries and this led to suffering by the Finnish people who were forced to pay higher and higher taxes to cover the costs of war. The Finnish people eventually rose up and began a war with Sweden which was settled with a peace treaty that meant the border of Finland was moved further towards the East and the North, roughly where modern Finland is today.

During the 17th century, under Swedish rule, Finland benefitted from the administration of Count Per Brahe, who was a Finnish Governor. In 1640 the Academy of Abo, the first Swedish University was founded. Finnish and Sweden are official languages of Finland. The Finnish language is very close to Estonian.
