From Old Norse -ari, from Proto-Germanic *-ōzô.

  3. Used to form the names of residents or inhabitants of particular places; in particular towns/cities: Stockholmstockholmare (Stockholmer). Note that the resulting word is not capitalized.

Usage notesEdit

If added to a a-final stem, the two adjacent a:s merge into one single a. The nouns get the common gender and have what in Swedish is called "nollplural"; when the plural form is the same as the singular form.
