Finnish[edit]

Suffix[edit]

-seen

  1. Forms the illative singular case.

Usage notes[edit]

Used after a second- or third-syllable long vowel. For words like neitsyt, this suffix is common, based on a stem like neitsyee-, but it is grammatically wrong – -en is preferred in formal usage, using on a stem like neitsye-.

Examples

harmaaharmaaseen
joukkuejoukkueeseen
