"Tämä sana vai tuo sana?"

Translation:This word or that word?

A decision Finns must make everyday.

There are actually two ways of referring to the conjunction or in Finnish: vai and tai. vai is used as an exclusive or, while tai is used as an inclusive or.

So no, you cannot pass off answering this ”vai” question with a ”kyllä”, you sly person. ;)
