Uralic Languages, Finno-Ugric Languages

The Uralic languages are Estonian, Finnish, Hungarian and Sami.

The major members of the Uralic language family are Finnish, Estonian, Sami (Lapp) and Hungarian. The Uralic languages are sometimes called the "Finno-Ugric" languages. They are spoken in Siberia, European Russia and Eastern Europe. Finnish, Hungarian and Estonian are unique in being the only major European languages that are not part of the Indo-European family. The tribes that spread the Uralic languages across Europe and Asia probably originated in the Ural Mountains (hence the name "Uralic").
