The Finnish noun "palaveri"[edit]

In Finnish, "palaveri" means meeting, so I wonder if it had common origins with "palaver". I would be very curious as to the words' etimology. 91.153.156.165 14:10, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

HELP! This entry is noxiously culturally bound[edit]

As a newbie to Wiktionary I started to fix this by adding the definition as in the Unesco page, but this entry is really settler-culture ethnocentric and a drag to find and read.Katewill 17:34, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Isn't the sense you added already covered by the pre-existing sense "A meeting at which there is much talk"?​—msh210 17:37, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Hm, no, I guess not; never mind. I've modified it for brevity and clarity.​—msh210 17:42, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
