The Hungarian language

Hungarian is a language of contested origin, originally spoken in the current territory of Hungary. It is estimated to have over 13 million speakers worldwide. The language has many theories about its origins and relations, although one of the most popular theories currently states that the language falls within the group of Finnougric languages, and is related to Estonian and Finnish. Apart from Hungary itself, there are significant minorities in Romania, Slovakia or Ukraine that speak the language (although different dialects of Hungarian are spoken in those places, such as the Csángó dialect in Bacău County in eastern Romania). Also known as Magyar, Hungarian, along with Basque, Estonian and Finnish, are among the few languages in Europe not from the Indo-European language family. In ${crumb}, stress is always on the first syllable of the word (it being similar to Latvian in this regard, although such similarities are likely to be incidental).

Hungarian is written in the Latin alphabet, but it has a few of its own diacritic marks, such as öorû. The language is largely phonetic, although some exceptions do exist. It takes some getting used to that 'sz' represents the “s” sound and 's' by itself stands for the “sh” sound, and “cs” is “ch” (like chair), zs is the 's' in pleasure, the ö and ü (and corresponding longer versions) are different vowel sounds and the 'r' is rolled like in Spanish, but otherwise the phonology is not of significant difficulty to an English speaker.

About Hungarian conjugation

Hungarian conjugation is a procedure in which Hungarian verbs are changed to match with various other features of the phrase and its context. In Hungarian, you usually have to have a couple of basic forms of the verb to work out its other forms. Conjugation in Hungarian follows the Indo-European system of three persons and singular/plural. It centers around the past, present and future tenses, although it has definitive and indefinite types (which depend on whether the verb refers to an object preceded by 'a' or 'the').

In Hungarian, the basic form is the singular third person present tense. there is only one verb with not compound future - van/lesz - and this one is the irregular one. And there are some stem-changing ones: venni, vinni, lenni, hinni, menni, enni, inni.

In Hungarian, you can conjugate verbs by these major factors:

  • person - (the verb changes depending on the person it is referring to, e.g. 'csinálok' - 'I do', or 'csinál' - 'he/she does')
  • object definiteness - just like agreeing with the person (i.e. 'I' or 'he/she'), verbs in Hungarian also show agreement with the object of the sentence, or, more precisely, with one particular aspect of that person - its definiteness, i.e. whether the definite article ('egy' in Hungarian and 'a' in English) or the indefinite article ('a' in Hungarian and 'the' in English) is used
  • number - (are we talking about a single person like in 'csinál' - 'he/she does', or many: 'csinálnak' - 'they do')
  • voice - active and passive: the difference between 'something is doing' and 'something is being done', but the passive is not really used in Hungarian except for some specific circumstances, such as in 'Az autó elromlott.' - 'The car has broken down.'
  • tense - Hungarian has a very simple tense system, based on the past, present and future

In the Hungarian Cooljugator, as usually in Cooljugators, we try to provide you as much information about the verb as possible, although we also try to focus on the most important aspects of conjugation. We hope that this conjugation information, next to the abundant examples we provide, will help you become a better Hungarian speaker, or just learn more about the language, or both.
