Usage notes[edit]

In English "winnable" is an adjective, but voitettavissa is an adverb, i.e. it cannot be used attributively. If necessary, an attribute can be formed by adding oleva (being) after it:

voitettavissa oleva peli
a winnable game

In this type of structure, only oleva is inflected.

Ennakolta pidin tätä voitettavissa olevana peli.
In advance I regarded this as a winnable game.
