Usage notes[edit]

  • The inflection of this word is problematic as it does not readily fit into any Finnish declension pattern. Joukahainen recommends nalle-type, which is shown above, but this inflection pattern does not conform with pronunciation. Therefore it might be advisable to use inflected forms of the synonymous term gruyèrejuusto in writing.
