We can omit pronouns 99,9% of the time. The verbs always indicate who is the subject of the sentence and putting pronouns into it sounds weird and redundant.>I go. = Megyek. (= GoI.)>You visit. = Látogatsz (= Visityou.)>He laughs. = Nevet (= Laughs. ... as this already has an affix or suffix or whatever, we don't have genders here, it's always clear from the context)>We run. = Futunk (Runwe.)
Well, the affixes aren't literally equal to pronouns they just signs. So the -unk
isn't we in English. (we = mi
Only those sentences need pronouns where there's no verb. Similar to English.>Who ate the cookie? = Ki ette meg a sütit?>Me. = Én.
I'm pretty shit at explaining grammar tho. I lack the necessary vocabulary.>you (formal)/him/her/it,>(formal)
Now this is interesting stuff. We have several level of verbal politeness. I remember a Hungarobernd writing about this on KC main. I haven't screencapped it sadly. I'm gonna follow his route but add my shit.
- Used among relatives, children, pals, friends, near same age peers sometimes after agreement, anyone who agree on this previously, it's like using you
basically, for us English sounds very impolite language
- similar to German: Sie, verbs reflects this, if you can pull it off you can omit the maga
(= Sie), it will be better as this formula of politeness is a bit blunt, and sounds cringy, used by grown ups among each other if there's no agreement of tegeződés
- also similar to German: Sie, more polite and it sounds more smooth, verbs reflects these so the ön
(= Sie) can be omitted lots of times, used by grown ups among each other if there's no agreement of tegeződés
- it's dated, archaic; to those women whom you don't tegez
, but you may court (for example) I've almost never heard it IRL, people are too bydlo to use it
- to address really old people, you put tetszik
(= if-it-is-for-your-liking) before verbs instead of pronouns, endearing but very polite, use it to both men and women
All formulas above tegeződés
can use conditional (would + blah blah) for further courtesy.
There are families where the younger people use 2., 3. or 5. to address older ones. It's an archaic custom I can recall one such family from the top of my head from among my acquaintances.
The agreement of tegeződés
is always initiated by the older party or women.
People can drink pertu
to seal this agreement. And will when the occasion allows it. If there's one way then the drink is pálinka.
