Usage notes[edit]

The correct spelling of this term is disputed. According to Nykysuomen sanakirja and some more modern sources [1] the words ennen and kuulumaton should be written separately. On the other hand, spelling as one word is more common, at least in the internet, and it has also entered the word list of Research Institute for the Languages of Finland.
