Usage notesEdit

A rarer substitute of ez, but unlike ez, it does not take the case of the noun it is attached to, and no definite article is used:

ezen a helyen ― eme helyenat this place
ebben a házban ― eme házbanin this house

Use eme before words beginning with consonants. Use emez before words beginning with vowels (e.g. emez esetben, emez alkalommal).
