Usage notes[edit]

  • In Finnish, accusative is the case of a total object, whereas partial object is in partitive. The accusative has two forms, one that looks similar to genitive (often called genitive-accusative) and the other that looks like nominative (nominative-accusative). The choice between them depends on the form of the verb to which the object is referring and the plurality of the object itself. For a short explanation of accusative in Finnish, see Wikipedia on Accusative case#Finnish.
