SECRETS OF FINNISH LANGUAGE – PART 5

why in hell are Finns using: Käydään mökillä BUT uidaan järvessä?? first käydään mökillä käydään = let’s go to the cottage… question: where to? so it should be illative or allative  and since a mökki is a closed space (at least it should be) I would like to take illative: mökiin… why not? second uidaan […]
