Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Lena: When we create adjectives from place names in Hungarian, we don’t capitalize the adjective. For instance, “Korean” is koreai, without a capital k. We also add the letter i to the end of the word. Of course, there are exceptions as well, but only a few. One exception for instance is magyar, which means “Hungarian.” We call Hungary Magyarország. If we break it down, magyar means “Hungarian” and ország means “country.”
