Noun[edit]

jäännöslopuke

  1. (phonetics) gemination; in Finnish language, the phenomenon where the first consonant of the following word becomes geminated. If the next word begins with a vowel, there is a double glottal stop between the words. The tendency of a word to cause gemination in the following word is sometimes marked with [ˣ] or [(ʔ)] in IPA and the actual gemination of a consonant may be marked with [ː] or by doubling the consonant (see purje, vene, purjevene).
    tule (IPA(key): [ˈt̪ule̞ˣ]) come + tänne (IPA(key): [ˈt̪ænːe̞ˣ]) here + autolla (IPA(key): [ˈɑut̪o̞lːɑ]) by car → IPA(key): [ˈt̪ule̞ˈt̪ːænːe̞ʔʔˈɑut̪olːɑ]
