Hello! What do you call a crank in your languages? How about a crankshaft, the part of an engine of a car? Finnish: kampi or veivi; kampiakseli ("crank axis") Kampi is probably more common. NB heittää veivinsä = "to throw one's crank" = to die (humoristic); "to crank" is veivata; kammeta means something else: to prise, to force open with a lever; a popular children's trick question: Kumpi ja Kampi tappelivat. Kumpi voitti? = "Kumpi and Kampi were fighting. Which of them won?" Notice that kampi is one of the i-e mutation nouns! Gen. kammen, part. kampea. English: crank, crankshaft Thanks!
