Asian Origins
Hungarian actually originated in Asia, specifically from the Uralic region. It belongs in the Finno-Ugric language group. Geographically, Hungary’s neighbors speak languages that aren’t very similar. This is because Hungarian is more closely related to both Finnish and Estonian.
It has 14 Vowels
English has 5 vowels in it. But Hungarian has almost triple that number. It has the basic ‘a’, ‘e’, ‘i’, ‘o’, and ‘u’. But then there is also á, é, í, ó, ö, ő, ú, ü, ű. The pronunciation of these last 9 vowels changes the meaning of the words so using the correct one is important. If 14 vowels seem like a lot, consider that Hungarian’s longest word is 44 letters. But they can get even longer because Hungarian is agglutinative which means that stems and affixes can be added to make the words even longer.
Christopher Columbus Who?
It’s common knowledge that Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas. But that isn’t completely true. A stone with old Hungarian written on it suggests that a Magyar was in Canada before Columbus. It’s at the Yarmouth County Museum. How long the Magyar visited isn’t completely clear, but it was a significant time before.
