Usage notes[edit]

  • Comparative and superlative could be formed according to normal rules, but in practice they are replaced by other expressions such as helpommin (more easily) taottava, helpoiten (most easily) taottava.
  • The term takokelpoinen appears in many net dictionaries as a synonym. However, it appears to be a neologism created by some well-meaning editor.
