    Well,I know native speakers here in Estonia who can't say correctly more than three words. I suppose you could call it"a colloquial way of putting things." But..let's wait for a native.;)

    It's slang. Influenced by Russian. Or it may be a poetic ellipse.
    WWW is full of native speakers who can't put together a full sentence in any language.
    Let us say it is almost perfect Tallinese. You can make it worse:
    Raplas lumi maas?
    On Raplas lumi maas?
    ...
    or the worst:
    On ka Raplas lumi maas? (It is horrible, but I can imagine somebody saying that.)
