In my opinion no one uses 'szervusz' anymore...Sure, it is correct but not commonly used so if you want you can use 'Szia' instead.It is the same
My dads side of the family is Hungarian and they use it more to greet ones elders
I just had a talk about this with my hungarian native pal. "Szervusz" is used more often in the hungarian community from Romania, where he suspects the language evolution is less dynamic compairing with the homeland.
They still use, but I agree that it's more common to use Szia.. The hungarian have a lot of words and slangs for greetings
Sounds like "servus" in Bavaria. Perhaps they came from the same root
yep, from Latin "Servus humillimus" ;)
The answer that was correct was "Jo napot, Zsuzsa", shouldn't it be "Szia, Zsuzsa"?
Yeah. The question asked "Hello Zsuzsa, how are you" or something. Not "Good day" = Jo napot"
