Usage notes[edit]

Appended to the strong verbal stem. Exact form depends, as the infix may trigger assimilation or be subjected to it depending on the inflection type of the verb. In particular, l, r and s tend to assimilate the n (such as tuleetullee), while a stem-final t is assimilated into the n (such as huomaanhuomannen). With nähdä-type verbs, the final k becomes h (such as näkeenähnee). The verb olla (to be) is suppletive and has exceptional potential forms with the stem lie(ne)-.
