Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Finnic *visa (hard?). Cognate with Estonian visa, Karelian visa and Livonian vizā. The original adjective "hard, difficult, demanding" is now exclusively found in dialects (and some derivations, like visakoivu); the modern sense "quiz" is a backformation of visailla, itself derived from that adjective.

  • IPA(key): /ˈʋisɑ/, [ˈʋis̠ɑ]
  • Rhymes: -isɑ
  • Syllabification: vi‧sa
