Article

te

  1. (archaic) in idiom; a form of the definite article de

Usage notes

This preposition used to govern the dative case. It also fused with the dative forms of the definite article:

  • (at, in): ter = te + der for feminine singular.
  • (at, in): ten = te + den in all other cases.

Combinations with the nominative form of the article, like *te het or *te de have never become part of the language. The collapse of the inflection system and the related demise of the distinction between masculine and feminine gender (for most speakers) has pushed this preposition into partial disuse. It does however occur in a fair number of idiomatic expressions, often with fossilized case endings, e.g.:

(Elfder, ure and bate are dative forms of elfde, uur and baat respectively.)

Finnish

Etymology

From Proto-Finnic *tek, from Proto-Uralic *te. The word is inflected as plural, but there is no plural marker in the nominative, except in dialects (tet).

Pronunciation

  • IPA(key): /ˈte/, [ˈt̪e̞]
  • Rhymes: -e
  • Syllabification: te

Pronoun

te (stem tei-)

  1. (personal) you (second-person plural; when addressing many persons or when addressing politely or formally one person)

Usage notes

  • Depending on the context, the pronoun can sometimes be omitted in written language if the text remains fluent – the pronoun is in spoken language practically always used (compare the usage of sinä (you sg)).
  • When addressing politely or formally one person in a written form, it is recommendable to capitalize the pronoun Te.
  • When addressing one person, the active past participle must be singular in negative past indicative, in present perfect of all moods both affirmative and negative and past perfect indicative — because there is one person addressed:
  • (negative past indicative)
  • (affirmative present perfect indicative)
  • (negative present perfect indicative)
  • (affirmative present perfect conditional)
  • (negative present perfect conditional)
  • (affirmative present perfect potential)
  • (negative present perfect potential)
  • (affirmative past perfect indicative)
  • (negative past perfect indicative; note ollut twice)

Declension

  • Irregular. The comitative and instructive forms don't exist; the abessive is hardly used.
  • In addition to the standard set of cases, te and other personal pronouns have a specific accusative form, teidät.

Synonyms
