Why "példát" has a long "á", and not short?
It usually (always?) happens to the vowels "a" and "e" at the end of words when the word gets a suffix.
The most notable exception is -ság / -ség.
Micsoda marhaság ez az egész!
Indeed! Thank you. :)
Why is that, I wonder. For one thing, -ság / -ség changes the type of the word, from adjective to noun, usually (always?). Is that a good enough excuse? I don't know.
Why is it milyen and not mit?
