Ten idioms from the Finnish Idiom List were selected at random and
translated in:

 Hui, Iverson, and McDonnell, Tacit Definition, APL91 Conference
 Proceedings, APL Quote-Quad, Volume 21, Number 4, 1991 8.

Each translation includes the original APL expression, the J expression,
and a short English discussion.
