EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Samic *-jtē, originally the partitive/ablative plural form. Cognate with the Finnish partitive plural -ja, -ia, -ita.

The genitive plural originally had the ending -i, from Proto-Samic *-j. It was eliminated in favour of the accusative ending by analogy with the singular, where these cases fell together naturally.

SuffixEdit

-id

  1. The ending of the accusative and genitive plural.

Usage notesEdit

This suffix triggers the weak grade on a preceding stressed syllable.
