Usage notes[edit]

If the person involved is emphasized, this logical subject can be expressed with -nak/-nek:

Nem neked van igazad, hanem neki.It is not you who is right, but him (or her).


  • For the verb, see van. Its negation is formed in the present tense with nincs, which precedes the “igaza” element.
  • The noun takes the appropriate possessive suffix according to the logical subject of the sentence: igazam, igazad, igaza, igazunk, igazatok, igazuk.
