Much easier than french "aujourdhui"

Actually, "aujourd'hui". And that is so cool.

Is there a difference between "ma" and "máma"? I've only heard máma.. is it a dialect thing?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/iRBiS

Yes, exactly. For an added effect, try making the 'á' sound farther back. You're now speaking like a Hungarian hillbilly, which is cool.

Crap. So today I learned I'm descended from rednecks.

Sometimes you can hear "Mánma" too. It depends from the dialects.

So now whenever I hear young kids say "Mama", I think, "Oh, they're saying 'Todaytoday!'"

was it a "type what you hear" exercise?

In those exercises, you hear the word/sentence in Hungarian, so write it in Hungarian: ma
