Usage notes[edit]

In Finnish, three as a value or count of something is just kolme, but in Finnish three as an attribute of something is kolmonen. Hence the bus number three is referred to simply as "kolmonen" and three as the face value of a die is also kolmonen, and so "three threes" in a dice game would be kolme kolmosta
