The Hungarian language

Hungary (which translates as «land of the Magyars», a term for the members of the tribes that settled in the country centuries ago) is a rather atypical case in the European context. Although its geographical limits have undergone major changes over history, particularly after the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, during what is known as the interwar period of the 20th century, the culture and especially the language have remained virtually unaltered. As in the case of Greek, and unlike English, in the inevitable historical evolution of Hungarian there have been no turning points or radical changes to hinder the understanding of ancient texts by native speakers today.

It belongs to the Ugrian branch of the Uralic language family, making it one of the few official languages of the European Union that do not belong to the Indo-European family, as in the case of Estonian and Finnish. Like the latter, it is an agglutinative language: words are formed by adding the relevant suffixes to the roots. The written form is based on the Latin alphabet, to which various diacritics are added. Because of its peculiar grammatical and phonological features, some people say it is difficult to learn as a second language. However, those who are familiar with it say it functions in a completely logical, harmonious and comprehensible way.

Hungarian is the official language of the Republic of Hungary, as well as various regions of Slovakia, Serbia and Romania. It is also considered a minority language in Austria, Croatia and Ukraine. Despite this geographical spread, many Hungarians deny the existence of dialects and prefer to talk about regional differences in use. There are currently about 10 million speakers in Hungary, over three million in neighboring regions, above all in the Romanian region of Transylvania, and around one million in western Europe, United States and Canada.
