Finnish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Probably adopted to Finnish due to influence of Germanic languages, compare Swedish teoretisk, German theoretisch, English theoretical. Without that influence, the word would probably be derived as teoria +‎ -llinen. See etymology of English theory.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • Hyphenation: te‧o‧reet‧ti‧nen

Adjective[edit]
