Estonian

Estonian is a difficult-to-learn archaic language with a complex conjugation system and phrases dating back to the Ice Age. Words commonly have twice as many cases (14) as other Slavic languages. Estonian lacks articles such as "a" and "the", follows looser word ordering than English, has no grammatical gender, and has no future tense. Estonian is most closely related to Finnish.
