    Synonym: asztalitenisz

Usage notes edit

Pingpong and asztalitenisz are synonyms for table tennis. However, pingpong is used more often in the spoken language and in informal situations and it may also refer to the everyday version of the sport that anyone can play while asztalitenisz means the professional version played by athletes. *Ping-pong with a hyphen is incorrect spelling in all derivations. [1]

The same distinction appears in other pairs of sports-related terms (see below), where in all cases the native term (first column) is the one used in professional or official contexts, and the borrowed one (second column) is to some varying degree colloquial:

labdarúgás ~ futball (football)
ökölvívás ~ boksz (boxing)
kerékpár ~ bicikli (bicycle)
