EtymologyEdit

-o- +‎ -t (accusative suffix)

PronunciationEdit

SuffixEdit

-ot

  1. (accusative suffix) Used to form the accusative case.
    ablak (window)Kinyitotta az ablakot. - She opened the window.
    nagy (big)nagyot sóhajt - to have a deep sigh
    hat (six)Hány könyvet vettél? - Hatot. - How many books did you buy? - Six.

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 some back vowel words ending in a consonant
    -at is added to some back vowel words ending in a consonant
    -et is added to unrounded front vowel words ending in a consonant
    -öt is added to rounded front vowel words ending in a consonant
