Usage notesEdit

  • It is declined according to the noun phrase it is applied to:
    Azokban a házakban venezuelaiak laknak.In those houses, Venezuelan people live.
  • Because az takes a definite article (the) and van (“is, to be”) is omitted in cases of qualification, some terms are ambiguous:
    Az a ház” can mean both “that house” as a phrase and “That is the house” as a whole sentence. The same ambiguity may arise with ez.
