BasqueEdit

VerbEdit

joka

  1. short stem of jokatu

FinnishEdit

EtymologyEdit

From the pronominal stem jo- + the suffix -ka.

The stem jo- is from Proto-Finnic *jo, from Proto-Finno-Permic *jo. Related to Karelian joka, Votic jõka, Northern Sami juogọ, Erzya юза тоза (juza toza) and Eastern Mari юж (ûž).

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ˈjokɑ/, [ˈjo̞kɑ]
  • Rhymes: -okɑ
  • Syllabification: jo‧ka

PronounEdit

joka

  1. (relative) who, which, that.

Usage notesEdit

  • As a relative pronoun, joka only tends to refer to the previous word or phrase, as opposed to a whole sentence (like mikä). In colloquial usage, this distinction is usually not as clear-cut.
    Ostin uuden puhelimen, joka on toiminut hyvin.
    I bought a new phone that has been working well. ("that" refers to the phone)
    Ostin uuden puhelimen, mikä oli ihan hyvä kokemus.
    I bought a new phone, which was quite a good experience. ("which" refers to the purchase)
  • In Eastern Finnish dialects, the indeclinable stem -ka is still used and, thus, the pronoun forms with -ka can occur in standard Finnish on occasion, because it is not a big error to use it:
  • joidenka, jotenka, joihinka, jonneka etc.

InflectionEdit

Irregular. Some cases are practically never used. The conjunction jos may be the lative singular of this pronoun.

DeterminerEdit

  1. every, each
    Hän käy lenkillä joka päivä.
    She goes jogging every day.
    joka kertaevery time
    joka puolella/puolelta/puolelle, joka paikassa/paikasta/paikkaaneverywhere
