Verb[edit]

emme

  1. The first-person plural form of the negation verb. The English translations include do not/don’t and not (with auxiliary verbs and be).

Usage notes[edit]

  • The negative verb is used with the connegative form of the main verb. That form is identical to the second-person singular imperative in the indicative present. The potential mood connegative ends in the marker for the mood, -ne-, and the conditional mood connegative ends in the marker for the mood, -isi-. In the indicative past, conditional past and potential past, the active past participle plural (ending -eet) is used. The connegative form of the main verb is always used without the personal suffix.
  • Usage of emme:
  • Indicative:
  • Me näemme. (We see.) -> Me emme näe. (We do not see.)
  • Me näimme. (We saw.) -> Me emme nähneet. (We did not see.)
  • Me olemme nähneet. (We have seen.) -> Me emme ole nähneet. (We have not seen.)

Conjugation[edit]

  • The negation verb has no infinitive form.
  • Indicative, conditional and potential moods use the indicative forms (stem e-), for which the verb is conjugated only in person.
  • In the imperative mood the negation verb has the stem äl-.
  • An archaic optative mood exists and is used mainly in poetry.
