    Why would this not also be osaatteko kertoa (to tell) ??

      That works as well.


      If I understand correctly, in Finnish, the "me" is implicit. Correct? If so, how would we say "Can you tell her..."?

      [deactivated user]

        "Voitko kertoa hänelle" or "voitteko kertoa hänelle" for singular and plular.

        [deactivated user]

          Terve / Päivä should be interchangeable as the previous question used it as a general greeting.

          [deactivated user]

            Kertoisitko is also correct (could you tell me)

              Reported: "Terve. Voisitteko te sanoa, missä lähin kirkko on?" should be accepted.
