Talk:maalainen

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

"Maalainen" means someone living on a countryside. And "countryside" is in finnish "maaseutu", which though obviously comes from the word "maa" (and can be synonymous sometimes, but not in the dictionary form), is definitely not the same thing. So "maalainen" being derivative of "maa" is false.

What's under adjective makes even less sense. First of all "country" is hardly an adjective in any language. And like I said "maalainen" means someone living on a countryside, absolutely not country.

And it's a noun, if I'm not mistaken... You cannot call anything but a person "maalainen", nor can you say "maalainen ihminen" (ihminen = human/person) just "maalainen" will do.

I other words, this entry is flat out false.

Could you please correct the entry? It was added by a user who knows nothing about Finnish. --EncycloPetey 17:12, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
