Kilka uwag o współwystępowaniu przyimków i poimków w języku fińskim

Danuta Stanulewicz


The aim of this chapter is to briefly present Finnish adpositions, i.e. prepositions and postpositions. Furthermore, an attempt is made to answer the question why Finnish makes use of both word classes, instead of one of them only. It appears that their cooccurrence is connected mainly with previous basic word order, SOV, favouring postpositions, and present word order, SVO, favouring prepositions. Moreover, what may also be observed is the semantic specialization of some words belonging to these classes.
