You are a linguist, I see. And (horror of horrors) teach english as a foreign language, which is a tad intimidating, considering...
To answer your questions; firstly, my name, Terhen, is pronounced (like all finnish words) the same way as it is written: (ter' hen). In this case I give you two english words and go from there. Think "TERra" and then, well, "HEN" X-D . There you have it.
I'd be happy to give a few lessons. Can't think why anyone would want some but god bless them! Finnish is a nightmarish language to learn. For example, we do not have pre- or postpositions, a lots of different stuff is just added to the end of words.
Was it that you knew someone with interest in finnish music? I might see the point, not much fun listening to someone singing in gibberish!
Can you tell me what should I do with the timethingy? When I posted my first message, I was surprised to see a three hours difference to our time here... I'm definately not good with these kind of things. And no, I'm not a blond ;-).
