Etymology[edit]

Compound of kenraali +‎ harjoitus. This is probably originally a misconception of the Swedish term generalrepetition (dress rehearsal). In Swedish as well as in English the word "general" means both a military rank and "concerned with, applicable to, or affecting the whole", whereas in Finnish kenraali only has the military sense.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • Hyphenation: ken‧raa‧li‧har‧joi‧tus
  • IPA(key): /ˈkenrɑːliˌhɑrjoitus/

Noun[edit]
