Finnish feelings in a nutshell

One of my students once said that Now I know why Finns don't talk about their feelings very much. The grammar is so complicated! I have to admit that one can have surprisingly many options to say almost the same thing:

  • Minä olen sairas. - I am ill.
  • Minulla on sairas olo. - I have an ill feeling.

  • Tunnen itseni sairaaksi. - I feel myself ill.
