Usage notes[edit]
  • According to Kotus, poliisi is inflected like paperi which, in practice, means that the genitive plural could be poliiseiden or poliiseitten and partitive plural could be poliiseita. However, these forms have fallen out of use and a person using them in speech might risk getting curious looks. Therefore, we present the "risti"-type inflection below.
