Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to explain the variation between two local case markers, the adessive (-llA) and the allative (-lle), in Eric Sorolainen’s 1621–1625 Postilla. The irregular marking of these two cases is a well-known feature of Sorolainen’s texts, and is generally assumed to be rooted in the syncretism of the two case markers in Sorolainen’s Southwest Finnish home dialect. The variation cannot be seen as having mainly orthographical causes, as Sorolainen generally distinguishes carefully between e and ä, and neither as having been directly copied from Agricola, though some generalisation of the adessive case marker does occur with Agricola as well.
