I removed the bracketed part of this statement about the -la suffix because it has no cited source:
"-la, a locative suffix usually meaning "place of"[, which comes from louko, a loanword from Proto-IE "glade" (*loukoz)]"
Lauri Hakulinen discussed this suffix in Suomen Kielen Rakenne ja Kehitys (5th printing, p.129-30), stating that it was possibly diminutive in origin and mentioning nothing about any origin in louko. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gavril09 (talk • contribs) 05:34, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
