By the way, if you look at the word liig in liiga palju, liiga pikk, etc (in Finnish: liian paljon & liian pitkä) - then is it also a mutated form of genitive or does Estonian actually require it to be partitive in this context?Loiks wrote:So for Riia linn (city of Riga), the nominative would be *Riig (which doesn't exist), like Estonian word liig: liia. Btw in Finnish it's nom. Riika; gen. Riian (although the Finns are kind of forgetting it and you can hear also Riika: Riikan).
