Estonian

Verb

olla

  1. Da-infinitive of olema.

Finnish

(index ol)

Etymology

From several different roots.

  • The normal forms in ol- derive from Proto-Finnic *oldak, from Proto-Uralic *wole-. Cognates include Estonian olema, Hungarian volt.
    • The forms on and ovat are either irregular forms, from the same root as oma (and possibly olla, if a frequentative derivation of that root) or from a third root with possible links to Samoyedic. Cognates are found in Karelian on, Livonian um, Veps om, Votic on, Hungarian van, Võro om/um and ommaq/ummaq.
      • ovat further likely has the standard 3rd person plural -vat in the ending, but could originate from earlier *omat.
  • The potential forms in lie- derive from Proto-Finnic *leedäk, from Proto-Uralic *le- (to become). Cognate with Karelian lienöy, Livonian līdõ, Veps linda, Hungarian lenni/legyek, Northern Sami leat.

  6. (intransitive, ~ (olemassa)) to exist (the subject often indefinite = in partitive case -> verb in 3rd-pers. singular)
  7. (intransitive) to behave, act (as if...) (when followed by a subordinate clause beginning with (ikään,) kuin, requiring conditional mood)

Usage notes

  • In the sense “to have” the verb olla is always in third person singular form and the person who has something is indicated with adessive case. Grammatically the thing owned is the subject-complement of the sentence:
  • Same applies through all tenses, infinitives and participles (where they make sense), e.g.
  • The meaning "there be" is rarely used without adverbials (such as those describing a location); it is more common to use olla olemassa in such cases.
  • olla (+ vähällä) + infinitive = to almost/nearly (do something accidental, harmful, wrong or fateful).
  • olla + essive plural form of an active present participle (-vina/-vinä) + possessive suffix = to be supposed to do, pretend to do, put on airs of doing, affect:
  • olla + fifth infinitive + possessive suffix by person = to be about to do (when something happens preventing it):
  • olla määrä (to be to, to be due to)
  • genitive + 3rd-pers. singular + pakko + infinitive = to must, have to, be forced to:
  • genitive + olisi (conditional) parasta + infinitive = had better + infinitive:
  • olkoonkin(, että...) (never mind (that...))
  • (interjection): olkoon menneeksi ((okay,...) why not, go ahead, (colloquial) what the hell)
  • olla kunnossa (to be in shape; to be in order)
    If used without an adjective, olla kunnossa is a positive expression, and one might as well say olla hyvässä kunnossa (to be in good shape/order):
