    Post What does "I'm finish" mean?

    Do English or American people say "I'm finish"?
    It seems very strange to me because finish is a verb and I think after am, we should change the verb form into participle or something.

    Should I rather say "I'm finished" or is either of them fine

    Thank you for your help.

    I've never heard "I'm finish" said by a native speaker - it should always be "I'm finished".

    Where did you hear this?

    I've never heard that from a native speaker, either. As Coffa says, it should be "I'm finished".

    Perhaps someone from Finland said, "I'm Finnish."
