See Elative for disambiguation.

Elative (abbreviated ela; from Latin efferre "to bring or carry out") is a locative case with the basic meaning "out of".

In Finnish elative is typically formed by adding "sta/stä", in Estonian by adding "st" to the genitive stem. In Hungarian the suffix "ból/ből" is used for elative.

"talosta" - "out of the house, from house" (Finnish "talo" = "house")
"majast" - "out of the house, from house" (Estonian "maja" = "house")
"házból" - "out of house" (Hungarian "ház" = "house")

In some dialects of Spoken Finnish it is common to drop the last vowel and thus the usage of elative resembles that of Estonian, for example "talost' ".
