- (slightly formal) to thank (someone: -nak/-nek, (optionally) for something: -ért)
This phrase is the only option when the thing being thanked for is not specified (for example because it is obvious to the listener/s), unless the place of the object is filled with a generic word like minden(t) (“everything”), which makes the verb (meg)köszön grammatically possible. However, köszönetet mond can also be used when the object is made explicit, especially on ceremonial occasions.
- For the verb, see mond.
- The inflected noun remains unchanged.
