Sziastok! Would anyone here be able to put some order in the way Hungarian talks about 'washing'?
So the basic verb is 'mos' ('mosok autót' - I wash a car), then we have 'mosakszik' or '(meg)mosdik' (to wash oneself?). Finally we have this '(el)mosogat' which can only apply to the dishes (?).
Köszönöm szépen a segítségeteket!
In addition to adda's answer, the ending -get/-gat generally indicates the action is being repeated e.g. beszél = speak, beszélget = have a conversation
So when the washing action is being repeated, mos, mosogat, there is some set or sequence of things being washed (naturally, dishes)
