Derived terms[edit]

Etymology 2[edit]

Possibly a backformation based on viineke, an irregular dialectal variant of viileke (band, strap), from the same root √viile- as viiltää (to slit), from older *vije-. Though appearing in writing since the 16th century, the word is unattested in colloquial speech and may be an old literary coinage.
