Two-syllable nominals ending with -i; consonant gradation possible. Also words formed using the suffix -kki.
Partitive ending -a/-ä and genitive plural ending -en. -i of stem changes to -e- before plural marker -i-, except in genitive plural, where it is dropped.
Foreign words and loan words ending in a consonant are often declined following this type: the nominative singular has no -i ending, but the rest of the declension is as for an -i nominal, including the illative singular -iin.
Basic declension without consonant gradation
ends with -i back vowels (contains a, o or u)
ends with -i front vowels (no a, o or u)
