A page with lots of information on Hungarian language you just won't get anywhere. And what's also very important, that it's being made with a good heart and soul and love for the topic. It deserves 6... stars but there are only 5, so... :) See More

Well thought-out page with lots of interesting vocabulary. I love the literal translation to explain what an expression actually consists of. It helps me memorise it and understand it fully.

Nyílt és zárt 'e' a magyar nyelvben (Two sounds for the vowel 'e' in Hungarian) There are 3 forms of pronounciation of the vowel 'e' in Hungarian, 3 sounds::: ..one is the 'e' (pronounced as ä) ..the other is 'e' (or some would write it as ë) ..and the third is 'é', which has its own vowel. The e [ä] is pronounced with a mouth more opened (nyílt), like the 'e' in this Hungarian word::: https://translate.google.com/#hu/en/persze The e [ë] is pronounced with a mouth less opened (zárt), like the 'e' in this Finnish word::: https://translate.google.com/#fi/en/perse Half of the Hungarian dialects (including mine – Palóc) distinguishes the pronounciation of the two sounds of the vowel 'e'. Those five out of the ten Hungarian dialects have preserved that archaic distinctive pronounciation of the vowel 'e'. It means that they have two different pronounciations of 'e', but what you mainly hear on TV and in and around Budapest is only one 'e' [pronounced as::: ä]. Too bad we do not distinguish the two 'e' sounds in writing in Hungarian. :( ° ° Most of the Hungarian dialects pronounces 'é' as it should be pronounced, but some people pronounce it as 'í'. Also foreigners, mainly Slavonic people, tend to pronounce 'é' as 'í' or simply as a long 'ä' (ää), though 'é' is not pronounced as 'í', nor as a long 'ä' and neither as a long 'e'. It has its own sound::: https://translate.google.com/#hu/en/térkép

Are there any dialectical or slang words, phrases, sayings that you don't know what they mean, or just simply would like to share with the others?

Sándor Petőfi was a Hungarian poet and liberal revolutionary. He is considered Hungary's national poet, and was one of the key figures of the Hungarian Revoluti...on of 1848/49.

He is believed to have been killed in action during the battle of Segesvár by the Imperial Russian Army, but his body was never officially found... he dissapeared... in the fog...

And because of that, the "Eltűnt, mint Petőfi a ködben." [ˈɛltyːnt mint petøːfi ˈɑ køːdbɛn] (he/she disappeared as Petőfi in the fog) saying is used when somebody or something disappeared without leaving any clue/sign behind them.

"The Puli is a small-medium breed of Hungarian herding and livestock guarding dog known for its long, corded coat. The tight curls of the coat, similar to dread...locks, make it virtually waterproof. A similar-looking, but much larger breed – also #Hungarian – is the Komondor." ~ wiki
