I don't think that "harcolok" belongs to the words we have to learn first... or is learning hungarian like a battle and we need this word.
Well, even if it's not a battle, it's a struggle, at least for many people. :)
It's an important cultural word. :)
Sportcompetition or battle/war?
It's a battle/war. If it was a sports event, we'd use "versenyzek", or "küzdök" (if it's a fighting event such as box or karate).
why is "I am fighting near the city" incorrect?
I had same issue. I think it should be accepted
Near means next to it, behind it, in front of it. Somewhere close to the city.
Hmmm...gotta say, that is a weird sentence :S
This might be a sentence that you say while gaming, right?
I am fighting next to the city.
but it is not the word "fighting" only "fight" and with worth "fight" the answer is wrong !
Should 'beside'the city also be correct
Sort of. But as cities tend to be large communities with rather diffuse boundaries I'd prefer 'near to' rather than 'beside' or 'next to, which would go better with discrete buildings
