Usage notesEdit

  • Note that this pronoun has no nominative form.
  • If this pronoun is an object of a genitive-requiring postposition, the possessive suffix is not appended to the postposition — because it is already in this pronoun:

itsenne kanssa = with yourselves (addressing many persons); with yourself (addressing politely or formally one person)
