Maybe "quallhevalla" (using French pronunciation rules) can explain how to 
pronunciate the word "Kalevala"... But it's not very good... In Japanese it 
would be written "Luuhi" and "Karebarra"... But the second one is even worse 
than when using French pronunciation rules... "Vèinemeuïënne" for 
"Väinemöien"... No, that's not good...
