Are fölött and felett interchangeable?

July 7, 2016


Yes, their meaning is the same.

July 7, 2016


yes, but if you can, please use fölött as Hungarian is already full of e sounds.

I would prefer the ö-version especially for the case of "fölé" (above there) because there is another post position "felé" meaning "into the direction".

the sentence is just hilarious :D Is it super wrong to repül.after óvónő?

No, that's fine. You just shift the focus with that from where she flies to who is flying.

Yeah, because that does not work. Remember that fölött is a postposition, so your "az óvónő fölött" means "above the kindergarten teacher".

You only get the doubling of postposition if you're working with demonstrative pronouns, meaning if they fly above "this" tree (e fölött a fa fölött) or "that" tree (a fölött a fa fölött).

I do not believe they have ever mentioned felett before. Have they?

They use it occasionally in this course, but it's just a spelling variant of fölött, so there's not much new to learn. :)
