Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈtokːo/, [ˈt̪o̞kːo̞]
  • Rhymes: -okːo
  • Syllabification: tok‧ko

Etymology 1[edit]

Originates from eastern dialects; probably as a loan from Karelian toko, from dialectal Russian токо́ (tokó); alternatively from toki + -ko.

Adverb[edit]

tokko

  1. I don't think, hardly; used to express doubt, often with softening clitic -pa or -han.
    Tokko sitä enää kukaan muistaa.
    I don't think anyone remembers that anymore.
    Tokkopa siellä ketään on, tähän aikaan.

Conjunction[edit]

tokko

  1. (archaic) if, whether; used to begin an indirect question
    En osaa sanoa, tokko hän vielä tietää.
    I can't say whether he already knows.
Usage notes[edit]

In current language, the clitic -ko, -kö is normally used instead of tokko. The example above would then read:

  • En osaa sanoa, tietää hän vielä.
Synonyms[edit]
