Could some kind person please help to explain how we form "in" for the word endings of "nyár" and "ősz" Thanks


Summer and winter take the -n ending with appropriate linking vowel, as if you were saying "on" summer and "on" winter: nyáron and télen

Spring and autumn take the -val/-vel ending (which isn't explained as a topic on Duo), as if you were saying "with spring" and "with autumn." The v of this ending assimilates with other consonants, so you get

ősz + vel = ősszel "in autumn"
tavasz + val = tavasszal "in spring"


Thanks very much for that jsiehler, it would seem that nothing is straight forward with this language. :)


It's also worth pointing out that ősz + vel becomes ősz+szel, and when you have two digraphs (cs, gy, sz, ty, ...) in a row, you only use the first glyph for the first one. So őszszel becomes ősszel. Similarly, cscs becomes ccs, gygy becomes ggy, and so on.


Would "It does not snow..." be said differently in Hungarian, or should I report it?


"It does not snow" would be better for nem havazik or nem esik a hó.

The given sentence Nyáron és ősszel nincs hó doesn't mention snow actively falling, it just says there isn't any snow.


I wrote, summer and autumn there is no sniw.. marked incorrect.


Is there a word for "neither" as the second idea is negative


I wrote "There isn't snow in the summer or in the autumn," and my answer was marked incorrect. Should I report it?


Seasons of the year do not take "the" in general.


Yes, that's what I thought, but in a few sentences "the" was in the correction, and using a name of season without the was not accepted. How can we, poor non English speaking people be sure? It's very frustrating to be marked wrong just for such "mistakes"


Am I hearing assimilation of the /l/ > [n] in "ősszel nincs"/?


The program does not recognize fall as autumn.


I couldn't tell ősszel ended in L in this sentence.


Sometimes the is required before summer, spring... and now it is rejected! Is there a rule in English?


That's what I wrote, and it was rejected...
