Etymology[edit]

näillä (at these) + näkymin (instructive plural of näkymä - the view)

Phrase[edit]

näillä näkymin

  1. (idiomatic) it seems that, the current plan is that

Usage notes[edit]

Strictly speaking, this expression is grammatically incorrect as the attribute (näillä) and head word (näkymin) should be in the same case. However, if judged by the number of Google hits, this formulation beats pure adessive construction by the ratio of about 20:1 and pure instructive construction by 2000:1 in usage frequency.
