"Onko tämä kieli afrikkalainen vai aasialainen?"

Translation:Is this language African or Asian?

July 23, 2020



When do i use "tai" or "vai"? They both seem to come up but i can tell when to use which


As far as I understand 'vai' means exclusive 'or', so the answer cannot be "both". When asking "Would you like milk or sugar?" I think 'tai' would be used, as the answer may be one, both, or neither.

Any native Finns know if that's correct?


why is "is this language african or asian?" not accepted?
