Person: person

Person is a feature of verbs (TODO: also pronouns?).

1: first person

In singular, the first person refers just to the speaker or author. In plural, it includes the speaker/author and one or more additional persons.


2: second person

In singular, the second person refers to the addressee of the utterance or text. In plural, it may mean several addressees and optionally some third persons too.


3: third person

The third person refers to one or more persons that are neither speakers nor addressees.


TODO: consider fourth person, e.g. kirja julkaistiin? (cf. ISK http://scripta.kotus.fi/visk/sisallys.php?p=106, http://scripta.kotus.fi/visk/sisallys.php?p=1313)
