ArticleEdit

te

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

Usage notesEdit

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 bate — for one's own profit.

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

DeclensionEdit

Usage notesEdit

  • 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:
