, -hän, and Appendix:Variations of "han"
- (personal) he, she, one or singular they (only of a human being; the pronoun does not determine the sex of the person).
- In standard Finnish, hän is practically never omitted, despite the verb showing both the person and the number. (Compare the usage of he (“they”).)
- In colloquial Finnish, the pronoun se (it) is often used in place of hän.
- Hän is used in Kven.
- Irregular. The comitative and instructive forms don't exist; the abessive is hardly used. (To be more precise: the singular stem is declined like type 32 (sisar) in the singular cases, except of the accusative singular form hänet (see following note).)
- In addition to the standard set of cases, hän and the other personal pronouns have a specific accusative form, in this case hänet. This form would have been the nominative plural form of the first stem, if the word were not a personal pronoun.
- away, hence (from here, towards another place, towards someone else)
From Proto-Finnic *hän, From Proto-Finno-Ugric *se. Cognate to Hungarian ő. False cognate with Swedish han.
