Hungarian Adjectives

Learning the Hungarian Adjectives displayed below is vital to the language. Hungarian Adjectives are words that describe or modify another person or thing in the sentence.

Grammar Tips:

As in English, Hungarian adjectives don’t change when the noun changes. Furthermore, Hungarian has no genders.

Kicsi ház (little house) becomes kicsi házak (little houses)

Ez az én drága kicsi fehér macskám (this is my dear little white cat) becomes: Ezek az én drága kicsi fehér macskáim (these are my dear little white cats).

As you can see from the examples above, the adjective comes before the noun.


Here are some examples:
