-e- +‎ -t (accusative suffix)

SuffixEdit

-et

  1. (accusative suffix) Used to form the accusative case.
    kert (garden)Láttam egy gyönyörű kertet. – I saw a beautiful garden.
Usage notesEdit
  • (accusative suffix): It can be added to nouns, adjectives, numerals and pronouns. Whether a suffix-initial vowel (linking vowel) will be used is hard to predict and thus needs to be learned with each word. A rule of thumb, however, is that older and shorter words tend to incorporate a vowel, rather than simply use -t. Variants:
    -t is added to words ending in a vowel. Final -a changes to -á-. Final -e changes to -é-. Final -o in foreign words changes to -ó-.
    -ot is added to most back-vowel words ending in a consonant
    -at is added to some back-vowel words ending in a consonant
    -et is added to unrounded (and some rounded) front-vowel words ending in a consonant
    -öt is added to most rounded front-vowel words ending in a consonant
    • Note that this suffix is optional and is commonly omitted after possessive suffixes, especially in the singular but sometimes also in the plural (and sometimes after multiple-possession forms as well), except for the third-person singular (as it ends in a vowel so its single -t suffix creates no new syllable).
      Elviszem a kabátom(at), Elviszed a kabátod(at), Elviszi a kabátt (!), Elvisszük a kabátunk(at), Elviszitek a kabátotok(at), elviszik a kabátjuk(at).I’ll bring along my coat, you’ll bring along your coat, he/she…, we…, [plural] you…, they….

Etymology 4Edit

From -etik (passive-forming suffix), removing the ending.

SuffixEdit

-et

  1. combining form of -etik (passive-forming suffix) before all inflectional and derivational suffixes, except the dictionary form itself, the indefinite third-person singular present indicative
    küldetik (to be sent)küldetés (mission).
Usage notesEdit

(combining forms of the passive-forming suffix) Variants: -at-, -et-, -tat-, -tet- (from -atik, -etik, -tatik, -tetik), as well as the tautological (doubly suffixed) forms -attat-, -ettet- (from -attatik, -ettetik). See more in the template of the full forms of this suffix.

-et

  1. Suffix for definite form singular of neuter nouns, especially if they end with consonant or a stressed vowel.
  2. Suffix for the neuter form of past participles of verbs belonging to the fourth declension (strong verbs). This may be analyzed as two morphemes: a combination of the suffix -en for past participle and -t for neuter, where the n of the first suffix disappears. Such an analysis is historically correct.
