As in making a watercolour painting or something or applying paint to the phone?
Which one is it?
Either. Though the first one feels slightly more legit.
Art at its finest.
Ez most itt nekem nagyon viccesen hangzik...:-) Telefont festeni... hm...:-)
Is this like painting a picture of a telephone, or like getting a telephone and painting it a different colour?
It could mean both.
Instead of saying "telephone," most people say "phone" in English. Does Hungarian have a shortened form of "telefon?"
Mobile phones are often called "mobil" in Hungarian, but "telefon" is common, too.
no, it's always "telefon"
Teló exists as a slangish word, I feel it may have aged and turned a bit rare. Or just with people I talk with.
is it okay to say it without the en ?
Yes, "Egy telefont festek." is also correct.
