Also there are lausuda and lausua, rääkida and rääkkyä. But what about kõneleda?
Sorry, you’re wrong. Sõnada and sanoa are of course from the same stem, and mean approximatively the same. But I’m realizing, how much do you use the word sõnada ? The same sanoa is in finnish most usually the stem ‘ütlema’.
Siin on siis minu arvates stiilierinevus.
I look into the dictionnary : jutella: jutustada, vesta; jutelda, vestelda. It isn’t at all « a little different root » Lausua: ütelda, lausuda; esitada; väljendada; deklameerida; hääldada. Here you’re right. As much in finnish than in estonian speaking languages this word is rarely used.
Now the biggest mistake : rääkkyä: vaakuda, kraaksuda; karjuda. The estonian rääkida is a loanword from the germanic word spreken. The finnish equivalent would be puhua.
I communicate a lot with finns, very difficult is to do… ( ?)
There are many resembling sonorities, but with different origins.

(A Northern Estonian doesn't understand sayings in Võro.)
I have to say that I have no personal contact to Võro, I'm very much a 'northerner', a tallinner , so the word 'native' doesn't describe me if we speak about Võro. It's phonetically closer to Finnish because of vowel harmony for example which has disappeared from North Estonian (and Livonian and Veps). But then again Finnish is devided into dialectal areas also and South Western Finland speaks quite a language similar to Northern Estonian while the Eastern Finns and Karelians and even the Võro have their own common features.
Well, and I've met the author of the 'synaraamat' and I know he has done it with a big heart and as good as it has been possible.
P.S. The language of the forums or chatrooms is really bad Estonian, it can never be an example.
Ütelüseq = ütlused (EE) = sanonnat (FI) To my knowledge there is no such stem in Finnish at all (and my Finnish is better than my Võro )
