In the declension tables of Finnish nouns there is a problem. The tables often show multiple forms in a single cell. There are always two forms for singular accusative and often for plural genitive, sometimes for other forms. The reason of plural forms is not given but the form of the table falsely suggests that it at least is the same in each cell. In most cases the reason is that the different forms are synonymous, from different dialects or otherwise in free variation. However, in case of accusative the two forms are not interchangeable: in any context one of them is either wrong or not interpreted as accusative. The term "accusative" actually covers two distinct cases (that have no standard names). Therefore they should not be displayed in the same way as synonymous forms in other cells.
