    That simple map shows the administrative status of Germanic languages - whether official or co-official. That's why French and Italian cantons of Switzerland are included: because even if Geneva and Tessin (for instance) aren't Germanic areas, German happens to be a co-official language there.

    Anyway - I don't see why we are still arguing. We seem to agree in that Finland is not outright Germanic, but is clearly Germanic-influenced. Then this influence will have its place in this new section, along with other Germanic legacies which may be distinctly recognizable around the continent.

    Ouh please, the only argument you have is that I am allegedly wrong because I stated Finns and Finland has received more Germanic input than French and Italians. You are complete buffoon. To begin this topic had nothing top do whether Finland is actually Germanic or not, it was just something you pick out of thin air from me to use it against me since you were out of reasonable arguments to back your initial claims of French and Italians being more Germanic than Irish or Finns. I have to be honoust, I am getting slightly irritated. I've expressed enough information about historical events and the current situation of Finland. It's up to oneself to decide whether Finland is Germanic as a country or not and judging by my reputation posts many seem to agree with me. I couldn't give a damn what some docile French Canadian think about the issue.

    YOU talk about Germanic influence on a WHOLE COUNTRY called Finland (sufficient to call Finland Germanic, according to your views, which is the core of the problem), while I'm more more moderate in telling certain regions and countries in Europe and N-America are non-Germanic but influenced to different level and on different faces. And Tyrol is downright Germanic, not more or less than Aaland islands because they're incorporated in a Romance state or because they look less Teutonic!
    Following your logic, I am being moderate too and legitimately tell that Finland is the most Germanic and Swedish country in the world since the most Swedish speaking municipality in the world is Kornäs, Finland (Österbotten). Åland comes very close too. (This is actually a fact, about)



    Please inform me in which way it is. This is totally relevant in this forum, which is about Germanic influence on non-Germanic "ethnicities, cultures, countries and locations world-wide".
    French Canadian have arguably received Germanic. Has this affected in their culture? Please, tell us. I am interested.


    What do I "wannabe"? If someone here wants to be someone or something he isn't, it has to be you. I know you must feel alien surrounded by Finno-Ugrians, but you could still move to Sweden.
    Nah, I am pretty damn happy to be the goodlooking me. Occasionally it's frusrating having to deal the French-Canadians without knowledge of genetics nor interest in any other country apart from the one where their ancestors left. Anyway, don't get me wrong. I love to educate you. I am sure by now you've learned that the most Germanic influenced non-Germanic people are Finns.



    LOL x 1000! Goddamn Finland is considered peripherally Germanic by your little linguistic map. You know why? Because it is.
    It's considered Germanic because Germanic languae has an official position in the country.

    1) Your first sentence is erroneous. Finland as received more Germanic input than Italians and French. Where have I opposed this? That's a well-received fact.

    2) Where do I claim that French and Italians are more Germanic than Irish or Finns?. Claiming things such as this would only make me look as obnoxious as you do by literally "claiming" Finland as a Swedish land because Swedish settled there and lived among the most numerous Finnic Finns.

    3) I do like your penultimate sentence. This debate is mostly over, it's up to members here to decide whether they consider Finland a Germanic country or not. Keep in mind though that the admins of this forum do not.

    4) Your last sentence reveals pretty much your ignorance of the mean of "docile".

    Finland is the most Swedish influenced country in the world, this without a doubt. Even if it's not a competition as you already said. The rest of this paragraph has no value.

    I'll open a topic very soon about it, while I'm on vacation.

    I surely have no interested in other countries if I spend hours debating with you about Finland, Ireland and Tyrol eyes:.

    And are they the Finns or the Irish? Ah, well, I just forgot it's not a competition.

    Peripherally germanic. Blue =/= green, right?

    Maybe ethnically, which I still highly doubt, but it is certainly far more culturally foriegn than Italy or France. Western Europe and Central Europe (I.E. Germania) have a lot more in common than do Central and Eastern Europe. They are very alienated, even pre-USSR domination.

    Phew pure bollocks, you don't nothing about the country ruled over centuries by Teutonic order of knights. Estonia has been part of the Soviet Union for over 90 years, ofcourse they alienated, However Estonia is a protestant (Lutheran) nortern European country culturally way more closer to Germanic Northern Europe than catholic France and Italy have ever been. This comes to Estonia's and Estonians phenotype which way more closer Germanic sphere than your Dagoland or France.

    We are debating in a thread about Germanic input of different non-Germanic folk. I believe it's very justifiable to include Finns in the discussion after all over 30% of the etnic-Finns of Finland can trace their direct paternal to Sweden. Same goes by culture, Finnic culture does not show in the political, religious, admistrative, educational institutions of the country, just as Negroid, Italian or Polish culture does not show in the institions of USA despite many Americans can trace their ancestry to those particular countries, why? Because the country is Germanic, not Italian, Polish or African.
    I believe you were saying Finland is a Germanic country. That is not the same as having Germanic influence.

    So you're saying Finland is Germanic? OMG, what a crock of shit. For Pete's sake Pete ( ) the ancestral language of the Finns ain't Swedish, it's Finnish. Swedish is the ancestral language of the Swedes. It's like saying Negroes are Anglo-Saxons cause they speak English. eyes: Speaking of crack you gotta tell me what you're on, I want some whatever it is. :p

    Have you actually any of the posts I've written nor any of the arguments; just a hint I am not talking about Finns but Finland, but I am sure that distinction is a bit too taugh bite for you, right? Anyway, figure it out the rest of the day.

    Nope, just the "Finland is Germanic part". When I saw that I didn't need to read more.

    Finland is the ancestral country of the Finns, not Swedes. It's no more a Germanic country than any other non-Germanic country where Germanics dwell. Sorry Petey, but you're just not right and no one here agrees with ya.

    Let's compare Finland with the USA for Example concerning Germanic-Influence.

    Finland received germanic culture and germanic character by germanics settling and living there.
    North America received germanic culture(s) and germanic character(s) by germanic settling there.

    Both should not be considered "germanic" countries. The Finns have their own sort of Culture which is influenced by germanic ones but also has it's own unique features.
    North America has probably every culture possible, which results in an own "American" Culture, which is nor fully germanic, nor fully latin, nor fully slavic, nor fully amerinidian.

    There will be always only parts of the USA which are germanic, but never as whole country.
