Why is "Hol a játék?" wrong? (Ugye, nem mindig tesszük hozzá a létigét, anélkül is helyesnek kéne lennie... :) )

Is jatek both a game and a toy? Because it seems like two different things being translated both as jatek

Well, it is definitely not game the deer, wolf and bear.

It can be any physical toy, board game, whatever.

Children's games that they play in the school yard are also "játék".

The games in sports are not "játék". They are "játszma".

The Olympic Games are "olimpiai játékok".

A play in a theatre is "színjáték".

Generally, "toy", "game" and "play" can all be related to "játék".

Yes, it can be both. "játék" as a material object is "toy", "játék" as an activity is "game".

Question words (or question phrases) always need to be in focus, i.e. in front of the verb stem. Here, "hol van" needs to stay together, so the possible answers here are:

  • Hol van a játék?
  • A játék hol van?
