Definite: definiteness or state

Definiteness is relevant for determiners and verbs in Hungarian. Besides the values Def and Indef, we apply the value 2 for marking second person objects, which trigger special inflectional suffixes on the verb:

Szeret egy fiút. love-PRES-3SG-INDEF a boy-ACC “She loves a boy.”

Szereti a fiút. love-PRES-3SG-DEF the boy-ACC “She loves the boy.”

Szeretlek. love-PRES-1SG-2SGOBJ “I love you.”

Definite in other languages: [bg] [en] [et] [fr] [ga] [grc] [hu] [hy] [it] [kpv] [myv] [pcm] [pt] [sl] [sv] [tr] [u] [urj]
