Appendix:Finnish conjugation/katketa

KOTUS type 74 (katketa) NSK types 36 (katketa) and 38 (kohota) Common type IV

Verbs ending with -ta/-tä; inverse consonant gradation possible.

The inflectional stem is obtained by removing the final -a/, and changing the previous consonant to its strong form. The remaining final -t- mutates to -a-/-ä-, -s-, -n- or nothing in various conjugations, leading to somewhat erratic consonant gradation.

Similar to the salata type, except that an a/ä is usually inserted before the conditional suffix.
