Yeah, often we put several words in one long word, that is why it looks difficult. :)

Sorry I cannot Google it right now. So I'll ask - What is a spelling bee?

A spelling competition, usually between children.

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

Wow! They are really long. It looks like learning Finnish is an extra challenge. 


That will also be difficult to spell in a spelling bee.

16 perfect Finnish words you need in your life:


SISU = Determination, perseverance. It means Finnish people don’t give in, and as the saying goes, “go through even a grey rock”. Sisu is also the name of a popular candy that tastes like salmiakki, salty licorice.


ÄITIYSPAKKAUS = Finnish parents put their newborns in a cardboard “maternity box”. This useful Finnish invention that is usually used as the first bed for the baby has even gained attention abroad. The box is available for every expecting mum free of charge, and it includes necessary baby supplies.

(I got one :D )


KALSARIKÄNNIT = Getting drunk at home in your underwear with no intention of going out. You have probably heard of this, as it’s currently an international hot topic. So forget fancy party clothes and red carpets and do it like Finns do!
