Etymology

edit

First attested in 1519. Of debated origin:[1]

  • Continuation of the archaic adverb ált (compare által).
  • By clipping of the later term által, itself originally the adverb-suffixed form of ált.

Their parallel usage gradually ceased and át was established in a concrete sense, által, in a figurative sense.

Pronunciation

edit
  • IPA(key): [ˈaːt]
  • Audio:(file)
  • Rhymes: -aːt

Adverb

edit

át (not comparable)

  1. (rare) across, over
    balra át!face left! left turn!
    jobbra át!face right! right turn!

Usage notes

edit

This term may also be part of the split form of a verb prefixed with át-, occurring when the main verb does not follow the prefix directly. It can be interpreted only with the related verb form, irrespective of its position in the sentence, e.g. meg tudták volna nézni (they could have seen it, from megnéz). For verbs with this prefix, see át-; for an overview, Appendix:Hungarian verbal prefixes.
