Etymology edit

Borrowing from Sami, compare Kildin Sami тӯнтар (tūntar), from Proto-Samic *tuontër.

Pronunciation edit

  • IPA(key): /ˈtunturi/, [ˈt̪un̪t̪uri]
  • Rhymes: -unturi
  • Syllabification(key): tun‧tu‧ri

Noun edit

tunturi

  1. fell; a mountain belonging to the Scandinavian Mountains or otherwise located in or around Northern Finland or, less commonly, some other parts of Northern Europe

Usage notes edit

  • The word tunturi is used of mountains belonging to the Scandinavian Mountain Ridge, which forms the "backbone" of the Scandinavian peninsula, and of rounded bare hills/mountains of northern Finland and Kola peninsula, and sometimes of similar mountains of Iceland. Other mountains of the world are generally called vuori.
  • The Finns like to translate tunturi into English as fell (instead of mountain) probably because the tunturis resemble the fells of England, and because the word fell is of Scandinavian origin. The Scandinavian word (e.g. Norwegian fjell and Swedish fjäll) means the same as the Finnish word tunturi.
