See also: Appendix:Variations of "ot"
-ö- (“linking vowel”) + -t (“accusative case ending”)
- The accusative case ending.
- öt (“five”) → Hány könyvet vettél? - Ötöt. - How many books did you buy? - Five.
- (accusative suffix): Can be added to nouns, adjectives and numerals. Whether a linking vowel will be used is hard to predict and thus needs to be learned with each word. A rule of thumb, however, is that older and shorter words tend to incorporate a vowel, rather than simply use -t.
- -t is added to words ending in a vowel. Final -a changes to -á-. Final -e changes to -é-. Final -o in foreign words changes to -ó-.
- -ot is added to some back vowel words ending in a consonant
- -at is added to some back vowel words ending in a consonant
- -et is added to unrounded front vowel words ending in a consonant
- -öt is added to rounded front vowel words ending in a consonant
