Etymology

From Proto-Finnic *-nek.

Suffix

-ne

  1. The suffix used to form the comitative case. It denotes companionship and ownership, and is written where English would use "together with (one's possession)".
    Menin ruskeine koirineni.
    I went together with my brown dog.
    Tiibet on mielenkiintoinen maa suurine vuorineen.
    Tibet is a fascinating land, together with its great mountains.

Usage notes

  • Relatively rare in spoken Finnish. The idea of comitative is more often expressed with other structures, particularly the postposition kanssa ("together with").
  • Grammatically comitative is always plural, even if used of a singular object.
  • In nouns the suffix -ne is appended with the appropriate possessive suffix. In Wiktionary the declension tables of Finnish nouns show the comitative with the 3rd person suffix -en to form -neen.
