In the Hungarian language, several letters are accompanied by accents or diacritical marks, which significantly affect their pronunciation and meaning. Hungarian uses the Latin script with some specific letters modified by diacritics. Here are the accented letters used in the Hungarian alphabet:
- Á (a acute): Pronounced as /aː/. Example: “ágy” (bed).
- É (e acute): Pronounced as /eː/. Example: “ég” (sky).
- Í (i acute): Pronounced as /iː/. Example: “ír” (write).
- Ó (o acute): Pronounced as /oː/. Example: “óra” (clock).
- Ö (o diaeresis/umlaut): Pronounced as /ø/. Example: “öreg” (old).
- Ő (o double acute): Pronounced as /øː/. Example: “lő” (shoot).
- Ú (u acute): Pronounced as /uː/. Example: “új” (new).
- Ü (u diaeresis/umlaut): Pronounced as /y/. Example: “ül” (sit).
- Ű (u double acute): Pronounced as /yː/. Example: “tűz” (fire).
These accented letters play a crucial role in the Hungarian language as they distinguish different sounds and meanings. They are essential for correct spelling and pronunciation. It’s worth noting that Hungarian is a Finno-Ugric language, and its unique system of vowel harmony also affects the pronunciation and use of these accented letters.
