Usage notes[edit]

"In Hungarian, piros [...is] associated with blood inside the body, [] whereas vörös is associated with blood spilled [...and] the fact that after a while, blood spilled tends to get darker could explain the inclusion of darker shades in vörös."[1] Common collocations include piros lap (red card in football), piros rózsa (red rose) and piros tojás (red egg, given by a girl to a boy during Easter).[1]
