1 Answer

The official language of Hungary is Hungarian, which is not similar to the Slavic, Germanic or Neo-Latin languages. The Hungarian language is related to the Finno-Ugric languages, most notably the Finnish language (several smaller languages in the family are now out of use or on the way to become obsolete, replaced by Russian). Some popular words that the English language borrowed from Hungarian are coach (kocsi, i.e. car, or cart), biro (after the family name of the inventor Laszlo Biro, meaning 'judge'), goulash (gulyas, i.e. stew or vegetable-meat soup), paprika (paprika, the spice) hussar (huszar, i.e. a member of a European light cavalry unit) and of course several indigenous dog names like puli, vizsla, kuvasz and komondor, or pig names like mangalica, etc. more
