Hungarian Adverbs

Learning the Hungarian Adverbs displayed below is vital to the language. Hungarian adverbs are part of speech. Generally they're words that modify any part of language other than a noun. Adverbs can modify verbs, adjectives (including numbers), clauses, sentences and other adverbs.

Grammar Tips:

While in English adverbs are usually formed by adding (-ly) to adjectives. In Hungarian many adverbs are formed from adjectives by adding the suffix -<vowel>n to the singular form of adjectives. In some cases the root of the adjective also changes. Examples:

 

Lassú (slow) becomes lassan (slowly)

Tökéletes (perfect) becomes tökéletesen (perfectly)

Bamba (inane, oafish) becomes bambán

Sűrű (thick) becomes sűrűn

Lagymatag (tepid, lukewarm, half-hearted) becomes lagymatagon

However that’s not always the case. Some words are adverbs by nature. For example:

Hogyan (how), and hőn (ardently, fervently) are natural Hungarian adverbs.


Here are some examples:
