Btw, the opposite of 'arki' is pyhä. (A bit like in English you have holidays!) There is also arkipyhä, which is a holiday that lands on a weekday.

And to make it even better, pyhä can also mean Sunday. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

:hmm: Vaba... vara. Vapa... varras!

(et) varras
pole, staff, rod

(varras is like a flag pole, not a fishing rod or fishing pole. For a fishing pole you use ritv instead, i.e. õngeritv)

But vapa is not a flagpole either, it's a "long and slender object" (Wiktionary).

(fi) kanto
tree stump

Another meaning of kanto is 'bearing, carrying' but that would be boring.

Finnish has also kanta for heel! It can also mean 'stem' or 'origin' or 'base', and 'opinion' or 'point of view', and 'a group/collection of something', and a few other things too. I don't know if people couldn't come up with new words anymore or if they just liked this one so much they wanted to call everything kanta.

places, monuments, and artefacts that tell us something about prehistoric and historic settlements and life

(Also used playfully/sarcastically to say that something is outdated or very old. For example, I found a sentence online stating that "two years and a phone is a muinaismuisto".)
