A small number of nominals ending in -tsi only. No consonant gradation.

Declension is the same as lapsi, except that the genitive plural ending -ten is rare.

When the partitive singular ending -ta/-tä and genitive plural ending -ten are attached, the consonant before the s is dropped. Genitive plural ending -en also possible. Partitive plural ending -a/.
