Hungarian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Origin uncertain, perhaps a Slavic loanword, compare Slovak matka (mother), Russian матка (mátka, dam, female, queen bee), from Proto-Slavic *mati (mother). However, the Hungarian word has never meant 'mother' and the Slavic words have never had the meaning of 'fiancée'. Originally, the Hungarian word also meant both fiancé and fiancée.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈmaːtkɒ/
  • Hyphenation: mát‧ka

Noun[edit]

mátka (plural mátkák)

  1. (archaic, dialectal) fiancée
