"A bent van, a férfi kint."

Translation:The woman is inside, the man outside.

Nő is eerily similar to the Chinese word for woman: nü.

The Xiongnu, a nomadic tribe that used to live in what is now Mongolia and the main reason for which the Great Wall was built, may have been the ancestors of the Huns. Following the great migrations, the Huns arrived in Pannonia - what is now Hungary!

Note that nü3 is Mandarin Chinese. Cantonese would be neoi5, Hakka ńg, Wu nyy and Hokkien . China actually has a bunch of different languages, almost too many to count, just like Europe.

There is a second 'is' missing. The alternative with the comma is contrived.

Megfontolandó lehet a névmások spéci használata miatt elfogadni azt is, hogy "she is inside, he is outside", mivel jó eséllyel olyan feladat után kapja ezt az ember, amikor a névmások nemének hiányával szembesült. Egy alternatív megoldást talán megérne.

Couldn't this just be "She's inside, he's outside?" Hungarian doesn't specify gender via ö pronouns so the speaker seems to intend to specify gender by using nö and férfi

I think you're right but perhaps the difference is more specific and easier to memorize... Dunno.

There should be "is" also after the man in the translation, am I mistaken?

it seems to me that it is not necessary. I translated at first try just "the woman is inside, the man outside" perhaps it could be phrased better like "the woman is inside; the man, outside" since you are omitting a verb, but it is not really necessary IMO.

I'd prefer that way, too, but spoken colloquial misses it sometimes.

The woman is inside the man outside... kinky.

Good job, I am happy to read it and keep up! Hungarian is so different, that every little success is great!
