Usage notes[edit]

The more commonly used adverb is paljon but it is common nowadays to use inflected forms from paljo when needed such as in

paljollako vähenee?
by how much will it reduce?
kiitos paljosta
thanks for the "muchness" (of the help or whatever it was) "much" refers directly to the assistance

contrast with

kiitos (ark.) / kiitoksia (kirj.) paljon
Many thanks (lit. much thanks "much" here refers to the amount of thanks being expressed)
