Noun[edit]

te (uncountable)

  1. (music) In solfège, the lowered seventh note of a major scale (the note B-flat in the fixed-do system): ta.

Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Albanian *te-k(u), from Proto-Indo-European *to- (it). Governs the nominative determinative, due to its relatively recent use as a preposition and its origin as a shortened form of Albanian *te-k(u).

    Unë jam te pijetorja.
    I'm at the bar.
  2. to

Article[edit]

te

  1. (archaic) in idiom; a form of the definite article de
    Te drommel
    by Jove.

Usage notes[edit]

This preposition used to govern the dative case. It also fused with the dative forms of the definite article:

  • (at, in): ter = te + der for feminine singular.
  • (at, in): ten = te + den in all other cases.

Combinations with the nominative form of the article, like *te het or *te de have never become part of the language. The collapse of the inflection system and the related demise of the distinction between masculine and feminine gender (for most speakers) has pushed this preposition into partial disuse. It does however occur in a fair number of idiomatic expressions, often with fossilized case endings, e.g.:

te elfder ure.at the eleventh hour
te eigen batefor one's own profit

(Elfder, ure and bate are dative forms of elfde, uur and baat respectively.)

Finnish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Finnic *tek, from Proto-Uralic *te. The word is inflected as plural, but there is no plural marker in the nominative, except in dialects (tet).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈte/, [ˈt̪e̞]
  • Rhymes: -e
  • Syllabification: te

Pronoun[edit]

te (stem tei-)

  1. (personal) you (second-person plural; when addressing many persons or when addressing politely or formally one person)

Usage notes[edit]

  • Depending on the context, the pronoun can sometimes be omitted in written language if the text remains fluent – the pronoun is in spoken language practically always used (compare the usage of sinä (you sg)).
  • When addressing politely or formally one person in a written form, it is recommendable to capitalize the pronoun Te.
  • When addressing one person, the active past participle must be singular in negative past indicative, in present perfect of all moods both affirmative and negative and past perfect indicative — because there is one person addressed:
  • Te ette ollut täällä silloin.
    You were not here at that time.
    (negative past indicative)
  • Te olette ollut täällä silloin.
    You have been here at that time.
    (affirmative present perfect indicative)
  • Te ette ole ollut täällä silloin.
    You have not been here at that time.
    (negative present perfect indicative)
  • Te olisitte ollut täällä silloin.
    You would have been here at that time.
    (affirmative present perfect conditional)
  • Te ette olisi ollut täällä silloin.
    You would have not been here at that time.
    (negative present perfect conditional)
  • Te lienette ollut täällä silloin.
    You have probably been here at that time.
    (affirmative present perfect potential)
  • Te ette liene ollut täällä silloin.
    You haven't probably been here at that time.
    (negative present perfect potential)
  • Te olitte ollut täällä silloin.
    You had been here at that time.
    (affirmative past perfect indicative)
  • Te ette ollut ollut täällä silloin.
    You had not been here at that time.
