Wiktionary:Requested entries (Finnish)

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Have an entry request? Add it to the list – but please:

  • Consider creating a citations page with your evidence that the word exists instead of simply listing it here
  • Think twice before adding long lists of words as they may be ignored.
  • If possible provide context, usage, field of relevance, etc.
  • Check the Wiktionary:Criteria for inclusion if you are unsure if it belongs in the dictionary.
  • If the entry already exists, but seems incomplete or incorrect, do not add it here; add a request template to the entry itself to ask someone to fix the problem, e.g. {{rfp}} or {{rfe}} for pronunciation or etymology respectively.
    — Note also that such requests, like the information requested, belong on the base form of a word, not on inflected forms.

Please remove entries from this list once they have been written (i.e. the link is “live”, shown in blue, and has a section for the correct language)

There are a few things you can do to help:

  • If you see inflected forms (plurals, past tenses, superlatives, etc.) indicate the base form (singular, infinitive, absolute, etc.) of the requested term and the type of inflection used in the request.
  • Don’t delete words just because you don’t know them – it may be that they are used only in certain contexts or are archaic or obsolete.
  • Don’t simply replace words with what you believe is the correct form. The form here may be rare or regional. Instead add the standard form and comment that the requested form seems to be an error in your experience.

Unsorted requests[edit]

  • busine - no Finnish section 09:39, 14 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    What do you mean with it? If you mean the musical instrument, its recommended Finnish name is busina[1]. --Hekaheka (talk) 22:02, 14 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • kauniina
  • maineensa veroinen- live up to one's reputation
    I feel like these two would be SOP and closer to collocations, as with just veroinen you can have hintansa veroinen, etc. — SURJECTION / T / C / L / 22:13, 28 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • muistona
  • shakshuka- no Finnish 10:38, 14 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • -venttiilinen (e.g. kuusitoistaventtiilinen)
  • -luonteinen
  • -luontoinen (2 senses: a) hyväluontoinen, arkaluontoinen; b) edustusluontoinen)
    I personally don't tend to create too many of these -inen adjective compound forms, because I feel many of them can be simply interpreted as compound + -inen formations, such as kuusitoistaventtiilinen = kuusitoista + venttiili + -inen. (-valtainen which I recently created was an exception, since I don't think it makes semantic sense to split it the other way) That's more of an opinion, though; KTSK has the latter two, but not the first one. — SURJECTION / T / C / L / 22:13, 28 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    I have added without further questoning those that are listed in hyphenated form in Kotus's web dictionary. None of the ones given above would qualify under that criterion, but for example -selkäinen would. Another criteria could be that we include those that are not used alone, like -selkäinen, but probably also -venttiilinen. Those that can be used both alone and as headword in a compound, we would include in unhyphenated form, like muotoinen, luonteinen and luontoinen. --Hekaheka (talk) 11:51, 5 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    I agree that -venttiillinen should be struck down as sum-of-parts. However, I'd argue that -luontoinen (as in hyväluontoinen) would not be immediately decipherable if one didn't get help from the English idiom "good-natured". Overall, I'd say the first two have idiomatic senses that their unhyphenated equivalents don't.
    Also, I'll add that I filtered these from an old user page. They were not necessarily terms I thought should be included. brittletheories (talk) 13:37, 5 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
