Reading it phonetically suggests a language that is or could be Slavic in nature. It gives an interesting study to the divergence of the Finnic languages. Votian, a subgroup of the Uralic languages, is probably a good choice. (Others include Karelian, Ludian, Vepsian, Ingrian, and Livonian). All languages which are endangered or nearly extinct. Language classification of the Uralic language does include Hungarian, which is an interesting point given that you note that this is from a famous Hungarian poet, but that the poem is not, in fact, in Hungarian. Mind telling which poet? Between the 19th and 20th centuries, favour (assimilation / language shift) for Votian shifted to Ingrian. Approximately 20-50 people still speak Votian, none of which are children. (This is one 'status' that pushes a language into the 'endangered' catergory.) If you are speaking of it, you might call it the "Votic" language. It is a close relative of Estonian. Estonian, however, is spoken by approximately 1.1 million people. Voli (adjective - Free) suvamin (noun - love) Ned (prounoun - these/those) kahid tryeyebuitin, [I've been pondering the last two words but cannot come up with anything] Suvamizelle (Using root context, likely a form of love/loving), Zervoottaizin eloain,* (see below/under poem) Vololle (Voli is free, ello is life, ollo is also life), Zervoottazin suvamissani (will assume this is another cognate of 'love') [To destroy/destruct, to jeer at love?] Eloain? I'm not sure about this, but elain is an animal. Given the meaning of the word which precedes it, I cannot help but wonder if 'animal' in this context is used as a slur on humankind; or perhaps a reference to the animalistic nature that is present within (some more than others). Breaking zervoottazin down: Vööttää is a verb which means 'to gird'. Gird is a sarcastic or jeering remark. I also see some similiarites to German, which is not surprising as you will find similiaries with German and certain Russian words. (Also considering the Baltic/Finnic region.) [Russian made up 1/3 of my undergraduate studies.] "Zer" is a German prefix (verbs) for destructive actions. Certainly, this is made more difficult without knowing if you have simply left the accents off, or if none of these words had any. (Ex. as in 'Vööttää') In any case, this late at night, that's all I can manage. I'd love to know the answer -- as well as why you asked; or were you simply posing a challenge? Either way, thanks for the interesting thoughts. It's been awhile since I did anything like this.
