Hungarian verbs that provide additional conjugations for other verbs.
Hungarian auxiliary verbs and related words:
- (personal) akar (“want”), bír (“able to”, colloquial), fog (“going to”), mer (“dare”), szokik (here formally in the past: szokott (“usually do”)), tud (“can, able to”)
- (impersonal) kell (“must, have to, be needed”), sikerül (“succeed, manage to”), szabad (“allowed”), tetszik (“appeal, be liked”) (and their forms, e.g. tessék, tessenek, kellett etc.)
- adjectives and nouns used (partly) in place of English auxiliary verbs:
- derivative suffix: -hat/-het (“may, can”)
If the person is supplied with impersonal constructions, it is expressed with the dative (-nak/-nek) and/or by adding personal suffixes to the infinitive of the main verb.
