|Finnish term or phrase: suomatu|
|Ok, I've been reading through some finnish poetry and found this one interesting:|
the line says " vainukoirat herkkäkuonoiset tuuli jäsennissään suomatu kiitävät tänne päin". As it seems, "suomatu" must be a participle, but I never found a verb it corresponds to. The question is: can the word somehow be related to the meaning "boloto" or anything of the kind? And what the translation should be than?
Thanks a lot.
I think, most native speakers of Finnish don't understand the word here, nor do I. In (already not momdern) Dictionary of Modern Finnish (Nykysuomen sanakirja) there is on entry: "suomaton kielt.a harv <suoda 1. akt. Kenellekддn pahaa suomaton mies. 2. pass. toivomaton, epдmieluisa | - - tддll' on hдn vieras suomaton *CAJ"
The meaning might be that 'The bloodhounds ... not-wanted are speeding here (towards us).
There may also be a typo. I would rahter wirte 'suomatut'.
