This question refers to the "tip" on plural possession. It says: { a kertem ‘my garden’ but a kertjeim ‘my gardens’ } Is the latter correct? (Kertjeim for "my" ? ) I thought that the suffix je would be used for third person singular. Please help.


1 posession: kertem, kerted, kertje, kertünk, kertetek, kertjük.
Plural posession: kertjeim,kertjeid,kertjei, kertjeink, kertjeitek, kertjeik.

(tj pronounced ty)


Thanks so much! But now that I have discovered i/om/em = j for plural possession, I am challenged with "WHY?" :) A dangerous and probably futile question in magyarul.


Why is egy omitted in this answer?


In the Hungarian translation, are there places where the verb "van" should go or cannot go? I placed it all the way at the end, like the previous examples in this lesson. It did not accept "... nagy szobájuk ebben a szállodában van", with the correct answer shown as "... nagy szobájuk van ebben a szállodában".


Think not where you put the verb, think rather what you put in front of the verb! What you place in front of the verb will be emphasized. In the sentence above, it should be the large room.


With your solution (verb in the end) the sentence would mean that they have many hotels (apparently with small rooms in it) and they have a big room only in that hotel. :) because you would emphasize ebben a szállodában.


Why, why, WHY can't "van" come after "A görög turistáknak"? I am so frustrated trying to understand this--and with getting marked wrong for a word order that is sometimes accepted. Again, I beg you, give us some tips on the placement of van. Focus? Emphasis? I can't figure out what that is half the time. Here, vvsey says it's on the big room. And, OK, I guess I can see that, but .... but ... but ...


------ i'm betting that if you're answering the question, "what's the ethnicity of the tourists in the big room in this hotel ? ", the "van " would go immediately after "a go:ro:g turista'knak... " ! . . .
