EtymologyEdit

An old essive (originally locative) singular form of vuosi (year). Originally, essive forms with consonant stems went through a greater degree of assimilation (vuonna < *voonna < *vootna < *voote-na), but were later made more regular again by analogy.

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ˈʋuo̯nːɑ/, [ˈʋuo̞̯nːɑ]
  • Rhymes: -uonːɑ
  • Syllabification(key): vuon‧na

AdverbEdit

vuonna

  1. in the year
    Synnyin vuonna 1950.
    I was born in the year 1950.
