Edit-copy green.svg Documentation for Template:hu-decl-ek. [edit]
This page contains usage information, categories, interwiki links and other content describing the template.

This template is designed for Hungarian nouns with the following characteristics:

  • Their final letter is a consonant (kert).
  • They form their plurals by adding -ek (kertek).

Add the template immediately after the ====Declension==== header. It provides the full series of cases in both singular and plural.

Unnamed parameters[edit]

The template takes two required and one optional unnamed parameters:

  • {{{1}}} - stem without the last letter, remains unchanged in all forms
  • {{{2}}} - last letter of the stem; if the last letter is a digraph, use the digraph; if the last consonant is long, as in kedd, use the double consonant.
  • {{{3}}} - the singular accusative ending, the default value is -t. Provide only if the ending is different than the default.

Named parameters[edit]

The template takes the following optional named paramemters:

  • stem= - the modified stem; use only if the noun modifies its stem during declension (shortens or drops a vowel)
  • ül=y - add this parameter if the noun uses the -ül ending in the singular (e.g. kertül)
  • ekül=y - add this parameter if the noun uses the -ül ending in the plural (e.g. kertekül)
  • sup= - add this parameter only if the stem= parameter is used with a modified stem, but the original unmodified stem is used in superessive case (-en case ending), for example név (name) - néven. If sup is not used, this would be incorrectly neven. Other examples: cserép, tél, tér, veréb, víz.
  • form=sing - add this parameter if the entry does not have plural declension. The plural column will contain dashes.
  • form=pl - add this parameter if the entry does not have singular declension. The singular column will contain dashes.
  • v= - add this parameter only if the suffixes are added to the stem with a dash (abbreviations and initialisms). The value is the character of the assimilated v in the suffixes -vel/-vé.


  • kert ('garden'; adds -et to form the accusative, uses -ül in both singular and plural)
  • ösvény ('path'; ends in a digraph and adds -t to form the accusative)
  • fejedelem ('prince'; adds -et to form the accusative and drops a vowel from the stem)
  • levél ('leaf'; adds -et to form the accusative and shortens the last vowel in the stem)
  • név ('name'; uses modified stem in most cases but no in the superessive case)
  • kedd ('Tuesday'; ends in double consonant)
  • Budapest (has no plural)
  • Falkland-szigetek (has no singular)
  • szept. (abbreviation of szeptember, suffixes are connected with a dash, the v assimilates to r since the full word ends in r)
