Category:Finnish agent participles

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

These are also called 'ma'-participles by their ending. With an actor in the genitive case, they form an adjectival agent clause expressing the actor by whom something has been done.

Laitoin taiteilijan tuoman taulun makuuhuoneen seinälle.
  • I put the painting, brought by the artist, on the bedroom wall.

The illative, inessive, elative, abessive, adessive and instructive forms are similar to active third infinitives. In addition to the adjectival sense explained above, they are used in an adverbial or verbal sense, each form with the auxiliary verb that require them.
