Etymology 1

-o- (linking vowel) +‎ -tt (past-participle and past-tense suffix)



  1. past-tense and past-participle suffix (homonymous form in the vast majority of verbs):
    1. (past-tense suffix) -ed, -t. Used to form the past tense of a verb.
      mos (to wash)kezet mosott (“s/he washed his/her hands”)
    2. (past-participle suffix) -ed, -t. Used to form the past participle of a verb.
      mos (to wash)a mosott ruhák (“the washed clothes”)
Usage notes
  • (past-participle and past-tense suffix) Harmonic variants:
    -t is added to monosyllabic verbs ending in j, l, ly, n, ny, r (fáj, szel, fon, huny, sír) and to many bisyllabic verbs ending in -ad/-ed (akad, ered)
    -tt is added to verbs ending in a vowel (sző, , , , , )
    -ott is added to back-vowel verbs
    -ett is added to unrounded front-vowel verbs
    -ött is added to rounded front-vowel verbs
  • (past-participle suffix) This form is the only option attributively. Predicatively, however, a construction of the existential verb van (or its negative form nincs) and the adverbial participle (with -va/-ve) is preferable,[1] especially when speaking of the result achieved,[2] although the suffix -t/-ott/-ett/-ött occurs predicatively as well, disputed as it may be.[3]
