Etymology[edit]

Frequentative aspect of the factitive verb haistattaa "to have (somebody) sniff (something)" — the imperative forms of the verb haistaa "to smell, sniff" are used in many, strongly vulgar Finnish insults, such as Haista vittu! "Fuck you!" (literaly: "Sniff the cunt!").

Verb[edit]

haistatella

  1. (intransitive + allative) To tell someone where to go/where to get off/what to do with it (continuously, repeatedly and/or indifferently, in an insulting manner, as in "go to hell!").
