Commercial resources on Estonian

Estonian (eesti keel (helpinfo); IPA: ['e?s.ti 'ke?l]) is the official language of Estonia, spoken by about 1.1 million people in Estonia and by some ten thousands in various migr communities. It is a Finno-Ugric language and is closely related to Finnish and distantly to Hungarian. It has been influenced by German initially Middle Low German, later also standard German, Russian, Swedish and Latvian, though it is not related to them genetically.

One distinctive feature that has caused a great amount of interest in linguists is that Estonian has what is traditionally seen as three degrees of phoneme length: short, long, and "overlong", such that IPA /toto/, /to?to/ and /to??to/ are distinct, as are /toto/, /tot?o/, and /tot??o/. In actuality, the distinction isn't purely in the phoneme length, and the underlying phonological mechanism is still disputed.

Another feature that sets Estonian apart from most languages is the vowel ([?]), a close-mid near-back unrounded vowel, which is farther back than the schwa ([?]), but fronter than [o].
