Usage notes[edit]

That to which one is willing is in illative case. The verb form of lähteä is active third infinitive, which is formed with -ma, -mä suffix from the stem of the verb. In the example above:

"to leave" = lähteä (to leave, go) > lähte- + -mä + -än (illative ending)

Halukas can be used also attributively but is postponed if accompanied by a pronoun (joku halukas tulee).
