Speechd-el i18n: Lang-code Docs, Wrong Lang in "message" and "prompt"

Hi, I've now been testing the Finnish in eSpeak using speechd-el, which 
works great. Two things, though:

1. Could the docs please give an example of a language code? I first just 
tried 358 for Finnish, and then started wondering about something being 
wrong with speech-dispatcher. Finally, I realized it is not a numeric 
argument, but fi as in URLs. Trying just numbers gave no errors either, so 
maybe you could regexp match for word chars, and complain otherwise. 358 
would be bad from a usability point of view, but I've gotten used to 
language codes in my Windows reader, in some ini files.

2. Why are a couple of messages spoken in the selected language while most 
are in English? That is, prompts like prompt and message are pronounced in 
Finnish in my case, which sounds funny but intelligible. I would prefer the 
English option since the rest of Emacs messsages are in English anyway 
regardless of what language I'm using to type.

Neither of these is a real complaint, just cosmetic stuff, really. But 
thought I'd let you know regardless.

I'm using Espeak and have my Emacs default to text mode in case it mattters.

With kind regards Veli-Pekka T?til?
