Translations

Etymology

Borrowed from French franchise.

Pronunciation

  • Hyphenation: fran‧chi‧se

Noun

franchise f (plural franchises)

  1. franchise

Finnish

Pronunciation

  • IPA(key): /ˈfræntʃɑi̯s/, [ˈfræn̪t̪ʃɑi̯s̠]
    • final “e” becomes audible in the inflected forms and is pronounced as i /i/ in singular forms as well as in nominative plural and e /e/ in other plural forms. Otherwise the case suffixes are pronounced as in ordinary Finnish words. For example genitive singular becomes /ˈfrænt͡ʃɑisin/ and inessive plural /ˈfrænt͡ʃɑiseissɑ/. There may be considerable variation between individuals.

Noun

franchise

  1. franchise (authorization granted by a company to sell or distribute its goods or services in a certain area)
    Synonym: luvake

Declension

Inflection of this word is challenging as it does not readily adapt to Finnish spelling conventions. In speech the pronouncing goes as if this was a “risti”-type noun with the exception that the final vowel in nominative singular is silent. In writing the original English spelling usually remains intact but there is variation in recording the case suffixes. Two options are shown below. The second one may look clumsy bit it eliminates guesswork from pronunciation. The part before apostrophe is pronounced as in English and the remainder as in Finnish.
