What do the accents in Hungarian mean?
Hi, I've only done two lessons. I've learned some Finnish pronunciation and a lot of Estonian. But, what do the accents mean in Hungarian? Is á the equivalent to aa? And are ÖŐ the equivalents to the Estonian ÖÕ? Koszonom

I hope this helps!
> is á equivalent to aa?
No. That's also not true for e/é (but for other letters it is).
Á and É make different sounds to A and E, not just longer ones.
Hi! :) If you have questions, you can write my, my native language is Hungarian. I don´t know the Estonian language. Ö is very similar(for me it is the same)as in German language. Ő is a longer form of Ő, and the same is with the Ü and Ű.
