I'm confused, if it's "something more to eat" shouldn't it be "jotain lisää syötävää"? Why is this not accepted?

If 'jotain' was used, I'd rather place it before 'syötävää'; "lisää jotain syötävää" [more of something to eat].

In this sentence the 'something' is likely trying to point to the partitive in Finnish [syötävää], but it's quite unnecessary and can be rather confusing.

    When must I use 'pörröista' rather than 'pörröinen' ?

    After a number higher than 'one'.
