Finnish Grammar: Declension

English has largely (but not wholly) dropped its declension and is a word order language. "The man bites the dog" is rather different in meaning from "The dog bites the man", though the words have been simply re-arranged to change the meaning. In Finnish, as in other declined languages, the words have to change their forms so you know exactly who is biting whom (oh look, there's some of our leftover declension!).

The previous examples are simple subject-object sentences (the biter being the subject doing the action, the bite-ee being the object or receiver of the action), and are usually in the case known as Accusative in many languages. The endings below are added onto the declined word stem, which is usually taken from the Genitive. The Grammatical Cases Nominative: This is your friend. Genitive: (-n) Possessive case. Accusative: Partitive: Cases in Finnish. The Finnish language has about fourteen or fifteen cases for nouns.
