SuffixEdit

-ne

  1. Marker of definiteness on nouns in the plural
    stole (from stol (chair)); stolene, chairs; the chairs
    æbler (from æble (apple)); æblerne, apple; the apples
  2. Used with some adjectives to form inchoative verbs

Inchoative verb
The suffix -ne may be analysed as two morphemes (-n (incoative verb stem) + -a (infinitive)). In Danish, this affix alternates with plain infinitive -e.

SuffixEdit

-ne

  1. The suffix used to form the comitative case. It denotes companionship and ownership, and is written where English would use "together with (one's possession)".
    Menin ruskeine koirineni.
    I went together with my brown dog.
    Tiibet on mielenkiintoinen maa suurine vuorineen.
    Tibet is a fascinating land, together with its great mountains.

Usage notesEdit

  • Relatively rare in spoken Finnish. The idea of comitative is more often expressed with other structures, particularly the postposition kanssa (together with).
  • Grammatically comitative is always plural, even if used of a singular object.
  • In nouns the suffix -ne is appended with the appropriate posessive suffix. In Wiktionary the declension tables of Finnish nouns show the comitative with the 3rd person suffix -en to form -neen.

-ne (interrogative enclitic)

  1. Question particle meaning "is it not that".
    Nihilne in mentem?
    Does nothing suggest itself to your mind?
    Ah, pergisne?
    Ah, at it again?
    Potesne mihi succurrere, quaeso?
    Can you help me, please?
  2. or… (introduces a question or an alternative)

Usage notesEdit

  • A question requiring an answer of "yes" or "no" is formed by adding -ne to the emphatic word:
    Is tibi mortemne vidētur aut dolōrem timēre?
    Does he seem to you to fear death or pain?
    Hīcine vir usquam nisi in patriā moriētur?
    Shall this man die anywhere but in his native land?
    ne id veritus es?
    Did you fear that?
  • The enclitic -ne is sometimes omitted.
    Patēre tua cōnsilia nōn sentīs?
    Do you not see that your schemes are manifest?
  • When -ne is added to a negative word (such as nōnne) an affirmative answer is expected.
    Nōnne animadvertis?
    Aren't you paying attention?
