I have noticed I am making many mistakes with my word order in Hungarian sentences. Could someone please explain Hungarian word order to me or could someone please link me to a helpful site? Thank you.
I have a grammar book - it covers it in just 30 pages :-) However, at the most basic level the most important thing goes before the verb. This can be a question word (like "hol?"), negation of the verb (nem vagyok éhes), or the most important information (ie new information - what would have been introduced to answer a question).
I am a beginner and I can only understand the occasional word in spoken Hungarian, but I am finding that when I think of painting a picture with the words, I usually get the order right! I close my eyes and think, if I was writing this as an experiential movie, what is the most important thing? And I start with that and continue as if writing that scene. It works a LOT of the time!
