Derived terms[edit]

Note that derived forms of ők use only “ő” as the first component; it is only the ending that marks the plural form (e.g. őalattuk (under them) as opposed to őalatta (under him/her), or ővelük (with them) as opposed to ővele (with him/her)). In all these forms, ő is optional and only serves for emphasis.
