How to say 'with' in Finnish

The English with can be either kanssa, mukanaluona, or the ending lla in Finnish:

  • olin sen kanssa koko päivän. - I spent the whole day with her. (Kanssa is actually very often kans or kaa in colloquial Finnish. If you want to speak super correct Finnish, say Vietin hänen kanssaan koko päivän.)
  • Onko sinulla passi mukana? - Do you have the passport with you? 
  • Aina kun mä olen Helsingissä, mä asun Minnan luona. - Whenever I'm in Helsinki, I'm staying with Minna. 
  • Kirjoita kuulakärkikynällä. - Write with a ballpoint pen.

Now I'm curious to hear how you would say the same sentences in other languages. Please leave a comment in your mother tongue! :)
