Etymology[edit]

pissa + Liisa; literally, "pee-Alice"; in Finnish folk etymology, the term is popularly associated with the occasional public urination by some girls in this group when intoxicated, although this is by no means the most distinctive feature or decisive factor in being a pissaliisa [1][2]. However, according to Heikki Paunonen, a professor of Finnish language, this connection may be ostensible and, instead, the word may be related to the term kusipää "bastard" (literally, "pee-head").

Pronunciation[edit]

  • Hyphenation: pis‧sa‧lii‧sa
  • IPA(key): /ˈpisːɑˌliːsɑ/

Alternative forms[edit]
