Usage notes[edit]

  • It is declined according to the noun phrase it is applied to:
    Ezekben a házakban magyarok laknak. - In these houses, Hungarian people live.
  • Because ez takes a definite article (the) and van (is, to be) is ommitted in cases of qualification, some terms are ambiguous:
    "Ez a ház" can mean both "This house" as a phrase, and "This is the house" as a whole sentence.
