What is the difference between onnellinen and iloinen?


[deactivated user]

    Onnellinen describes someone who's generally happy and content in life. Iloinen describes someone who's happy in a good mood or delighted.

    If "olen onnellinen" is acceptable as "I am happy", then "the child is happy" should be able to be "Lapsi on onnellinen"!!

    Maybe there are some prejudices about long term happiness in childhood?! ;) :D
