KOTUS type 22 (parfait) NSK type 31 (bébé)

Foreign words ending in a consonant that are pronounced as though they ended in a vowel (particularly French words); no consonant gradation.

The word is declined as for type rosé, except that endings follow an apostrophe.

Partitive ending -ta/-tä and genitive plural ending -den.

The vowel used in the illative singular ending -hVn depends on the pronunciation of the word — eg parfait’hen but bordeaux’hon.
