Usage notes[edit]

  • When used in specifying a year, this term is normally used with the word alku (beginning). Sometimes possessive suffix -mme (our) is added:
ennen ajanlaskun alkua
before the Common Era; (lit.) before the beginning of the Common Era
jälkeen ajanlaskumme alun
of the Common Era; (lit.) after the beginning of our Common Era
  • The traditional and still more common way of differentiating between the years before and of the Common Era is to refer to the birth of Christ with ennen Kristusta (before Christ) or jälkeen Kristuksen (anno Domini, lit. after Christ).
