This simplest form of ⟨-e⟩ declension is used for personal names, and some nouns representing a form of person (such as nalle – teddybear, nukke – doll, pelle – clown, itse – self). Other ⟨-e⟩ nominals mainly use the declension type type 48 (hame).
Partitive ending ⟨-a⟩/⟨-ä⟩ and genitive plural ending ⟨-en⟩. The declension is the same as type 1 (valo), except that the alternative genitive plural ending ⟨-n⟩ is rare, rather than obsolete.
