  1. The reason for the difference in the word output between English, French and Spanish, on one hand, and Finnish, on the other, is that Finnish is an agglutinative language with longer words with more information than prefixative languages, such as English, French and Spanish. For example, fi 'sydämessäni' = en 'in my heart'. Here the word stem 'sydäme-' (heart, nominative singular 'sydän') is followed by the inessive case ending '-ssä' (in) and the possessive suffix '-ni' (my).
