This word has a curious history. It is related to the stem -Älm- which means across. The word for bridge was originally jÄlmÄ«ke, derived from -Älm- and the suffix for made things -Ä«k-. However, there is a prefix Äl- which is an augmentative prefix, and so jÄlmÄ«ke came to be reanalyzed as ‘large’ + -mÄ«k-, which came to mean bridge.
