Learn Hungarian 1×09 – All the attachments (well, not all, but… ya’know)

No!

It’s not really polite starting a conversation with  “no” but in this case it’s – NO, I didn’t lie to you!
About what? You might ask…
Yeah, well, about attachments!

I didn’t lie, I swear, you just weren’t ready. Because now, I am going to show you all the attachments, for the high and low pitch sound thingies, words, you know what I am talking about. And these are all the attachments!

And why are there so many, you might ask, with righteousness and stuff… Well, the truth is we have that high pitch thing and that low thing, but we have something extraordinary.

Because, as you can see, I wrote – TESZTEL, as an example.
It means – testing.

And I wrote – HALL,
which means – I hear something.

But in the middle there is – ÜL,
which means – sit.

Now, if I zoom out a bit, or just going backwards, you can see that we have these three groups.

And the letters Ü and Ö are quite special.
Other than the fact that there is no Ü or Ö in English. I mean they are special even for us.

Defining the groups is quite easy.

Here you can see all the attachments for the subject mode.

And here you can see all the attachments for the object mode.

new-bitmffap-image

Ant the letter – T. Yaaay!

The letter – T is very special. It is our 37-th attachment. And it is going to be at the end of every, and I mean every object what we say in our sentences. Yea! It is the attachment for the object! That is the truth!

Now, lets just repeat all the attachments individually.

Let’s see:

new-bitmap-image

fffgdfd

ffgff

f

f

f

f

f

f

f

f

f

f

fg

f

gg

Quite simple.

Now we have ÜL.
ÜL
is quite special as I mentioned before and we have letter Ö in the attachment. Instead of –EK. So:

new-bitmap-image-2

d

d

d

d

d

d

d

d

d

d

d

d

d

d

d

That’s okay.

Now we have: HAL.
If you remember, it means – I hear.. Or someone hear because it’s in the dictionary like this. But if I want to put it in a sentence I have to say:

new-bitmap-image-3

g

g

g

g

We have the letter (A)… We don’t always put the letter ”A’ or something E, as I mentioned before, before the attachments at the end of the word. But sometimes we do. But that is a mystery even for Hungarians. Or not? But you are not ready.  So let’s move on.

j

j

j

j

Oh and that’s an – “O”

And that’s an – “A” again

h

h

So, these are all the attachments, if you use that stand alone, without anything. But if you use it with an object, that is a whole another case.

So let’s see:

new-bitmap-image

h

h

l

That’s quite familiar, right?

j

j

j

j

j

j

j

j

jh

j

g

Then we have: ÖL.
Now, this one (ÜL) and this one (ÖL) doesn’t mean the same.

ÜL means to sit, and ÖL means-  to kill.

I don’t like murdering as an example however in this case, ÖL is the only word I can use as a short example. So we have to settle with that.
So let’s kill:

new-bitmffap-image

l

l

ÖLÖM-that means- I killed that particular someone. So I kill him, or I kill table which is not really a good example. But, well we don’t really kill anyone so anyway…

l

l

l

l

l

l

l

l

l

l

l

Then we have the usual HALL:

new-bitmap-image-3d

Normally this is the end of this lesson, but today, we’re gonna do something special.

We wanna learn more, right? Right?
So, today we learn more, just a little bit more, because as I mentioned, we have this – T letter, and we put it in the end of the object.

And now let’s make a sentence with an object and some verbs. Oh yeah!

And now the secret of Hungarian language shall be revealed now!
This is it! Oh, no, this is a short sentence. This one you know.

OLVAS – it means read, OLVASOK. Now do you remember – OK?

It’s also green.. It’s there, so it means – I. That would be me… So I read! OLVASOK.

So it’s quite easy, isn’t it?

Now let’s do the hard sentence! Because this one uses the – OM attachment.

OLVASOM A KÖNYVET.

Remember –A? It means – THE.
KÖNYV – means – BOOK.
And there’s the – T!
However, it would be really hard to pronounce KÖNYVT so we just put in an – E” letter. just to make prononciation easier.

And this is the whole sentence: OLVASOM A KÖNYVET.

Now I’m gonna leave you with that. So, until the next time, thank you very much for watching, and I remember, Alex wrote me. So Alex, thank you for your input and again, thank you!

Bye!
