They won't be stupid for long.

Curious: why does ablak take -on here?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dvanclev

Sorry. I meant why -on as opposed to not taking a suffix or as opposed to taking some other suffix, not why -on as opposed to other forms of the superessive.

I guess that's just Hungarian semantics. In English, we say jump out of the window; they say jump out on the window.

Instead of "ferfiak" i hear "ferfi aki.." might be its only my problem.

on the 20th floor one can jump, one can jump up and down, but if those stupid men really wanted to jump out the window, they would do it from the 20th floor, not on it

And one jumps from not on the 20th floor
