Finnish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Latin veto

Verb[edit]

vetota

  1. (rare) to veto

Conjugation[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

This verb is seldom used in other than its uninflected form, since it does not really fit the system of conjugating Finnish verbs. Many of its inflected forms are similar to those of the verb vedota (to appeal), and the danger of confusion is obvious. Therefore, the idea of the English verb "to veto" is usually expressed by the phrase käyttää veto-oikeutta ("to use the right of veto"), with a possessive suffix appended to the noun if applicable.
