Does Ön have to be capitalized?

November 11, 2017


Absolutely not! It shouldn't be. In Hungarian, no pronouns are ever capitalized. The only exception used to be writing personal/official letters, but even there it's not a rule to capitalize, it's just an accepted deviation from the rule, and absolutely not necessary.

Capitalization is supposed to convey extra respect, but actually: capitalizing any pronouns outside some official documents seems very over-the-top (and frankly, ridiculous).
