"Én várok egy kicsit."

Translation:I am waiting a bit.

Does it also mean I'm waiting for a little one too?

August 6, 2016


Yes it does.

Also would "I wait a little" not be correct?

why is this wrong? "I wait a little bit."

Wouldn't this be more natural in a future tense (I'll wait a little)? It does not sound quite natural to me in the present tense.

Hungarian present and future tense are identical so this sentence is still fine for "I will wait a little", I just wonder if it registers the future tense this early in the course...

There is no future tense in the whole Hungarian tree, only past tense.

I agree. That is correct in English. Some of the translations are too literal and awkward in English.

Does this mean waiting for a bit of time (he's running late, but I'll wait for a bit) or a physical bit of something (I waa going to go but I'll wait for a bit of cake)? I assume the former but it seems quite a colloquial term to be learning so soon.

It technically means both.

The term usually means to wait for a bit of time, but the verb can be used for people and objects as well:

"I'll wait for a little bit of time." = "Várok egy kicsit." / "Várok egy kis ideig."

"I'll wait for a little one (person)." = "Várok egy kicsit." / "Várok egy kicsire."

"I'll wait for a bit (of cake)." = "Várok egy kicsit." / "Várok egy kis tortát." / "Várok egy kis tortára."

Also note that for objects, the accusative case ("várni valamiT", "várok egy kis tortáT") can also mean to expect something.

"I'll wait for a little one (person)." = "Várok egy kicsit." / "Várok egy kicsire." Is this used about pregnancy? That was the only meaning I could figure out before I read the comments (good thing I did!)

It can be used about pregnancy, or literally, waiting for someone who is little. The sentence does sound a little awkward in this version, my point was that you can use the structure (verb "várni" + accusative/sublative) for people and objects as well.

Isn't 'I'll wait a bit.' acceptable?

March 31, 2017


Is not I am waiting a bit going to be excepted?
