A funny comparison with Finnish and Eruanno's language

Hi Eruanno and others!

This language really looks a lot like Finnish! In many places it looks much
more like Finnish as the results of LangMaker program with Finnish template,
for instance. One exception is, of course, that Eruanno doesn't use our
three vocals y, ä and ö.

I just thought you would be interested in seeing how many of these words
mean something in Finnish. The percentage is very high!

Mikke could be used to shorten Mikael, a male first name.
