External links modifiedEdit

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just modified 2 external links on Finnish language. Please take a moment to review my edit. If you have any questions, or need the bot to ignore the links, or the page altogether, please visit this simple FaQ for additional information. I made the following changes:

"Alternative" pronunciations in the tableEdit

This is not common practice, and /r/ is not a dental plosive, so it does not belong in the table. Mentioning the actual pronunciation under the table is sufficient. SURJECTION ·talk·contr·log· 07:53, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Again: the standard educated pronunciation is /d/, and the table is about that standard pronunciation. If it were about dialects, you'd have to add in palatalization and all that as well. SURJECTION ·talk·contr·log· 07:55, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
