Finnish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Swedish afton (evening, eve); "evening" and "eve" are the same word in Swedish because the ecclesiastical day changes at 6 p.m., but only the "eve"-sense has been borrowed into Finnish.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈɑːtːo/, [ˈɑːt̪ːo̞]
  • Rhymes: -ɑːtːo
  • Syllabification: aat‧to
