Finnish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

perus- (base) +‎ kunta (municipality); coined in 2000 - 2005 by advocates of merging existing municipalities into much larger units; refers to the idea that the new, large and strong municipalities would be the principal structure that provides public services to citizens.

Noun[edit]

peruskunta

  1. This entry needs a definition. Please add one, then remove {{defn}}. (As of Feb 2013 this term does not seem to have an established English translation; "basic municipality" has been used by Finland's largest newspaper Helsingin Sanomat on their English-language net pages, but it certainly requires an explanation when used in an English text for the first time)
