Well, the Finnish aggressivi is apparently ahead of those new Estonian cases, because it has its own Wikipedia page. Even the värskeltütlev kääne doesn't get one of those. (Or maybe the aggressiivi was just more aggressive in promoting itself.)
There is also:
Käänded koertele: haukuv, urisev, ulguv, niuksuv, jalgatõstev.
Prantsis, I was looking at your link again. Even the question itself (mis on teie lemmik eesti keele kääne?) strikes me as silly, and somehow the answers that took the question seriously seem as funny as the ones that didn't, maybe because they are mixed in so randomly with the puns. I'm trying to think of how I would answer that question myself.Prantsis wrote:This joke reminds me of a thread in a different forum.
Let's see: I like the sound of some words in the lühike sisseütlev case, like majja, linna, tallu, ojja. I like the formation of the omastav case and the fact that it can be so conveniently used to form eleven of the others. And at times I've had an intense dislike of the mitmuse osastav.
As for the unreal ones, the teisitiütlev really should be a real thing, because I'm pretty sure I use it all the time, whenever I can't think of the right word or when I misuse the mitmuse osastav, for example. (Or maybe that is the eksiv kääne that I use.) Aga mu lemmik kääne on naerutav (või naerev).
So how about the rest of you? Mis on teie lemmik eesti keele kääne?
