Actually the singular form of fiinde is fiind, without a schwa at the end. It's still really impressive. In West Frisian we say "fijân", though, which sounds completely different with the [ɔː] in it.

It used to be fíandi or fjándi. Maybe I should wander off to Frisian a bit again! I remember giving up because my Frisian friend disappeared :P I have another question, if that's okay. I'm sort of making this thread a general Questions about Frisian thread :P

Yeah you should, I'm here for you! Would you learn all three Frisian languages or do you prefer one above the other two?

Yeah, I tend to, but sometimes it's just inevitable, since a lot of people of my age don't understand the real Frisian words. I'm really sad when I speak Frisian to someone and his or her Frisian sounds like Dutch. Also the verb inversion in some sentences sounds really Dutch.

    Soest dat dwaan wolle? (Would-2SG that do want?)
    Soest dat wolle dwaan? (Would-2SG that want do?)
    Zou je dat willen doen? (Would you that want do?)
The second sentence sounds really awful to me, sometimes I can't stand it them inverting those verbs. I feel like I stand and watch the Frisian language dying when I hear such sentences. :P

It's interesting to compare them, but I'll probably focus on West Frisian, at least in the beginning. I'm not sure how diligently I'm going to study it though, seeing as I'm doing both Estonian and Japanese + part-time job at the moment, and exams are approaching fast :P

Hehe, understandable! Often we have two words that are used equally much, but people don't realize they are synonyms, and overuse the Latin-Greek-English-German loans :P

Yeah, I get it. I was planning on studying Chinese, too, but I kind of don't have enough time to do this, so actually I can't call it studying anymore. Well, I can at least help you out with West Frisian. I can also help you with some North Frisian, since I've learned that for a while and I bet I'd be able to help with some Saterland Frisian as well, since it doesn't seem really hard to learn.

Yeah, that's about the same which happens to Frisian with Dutch words.
