Hi Armond,

'meg' is a prefix or so called coverb, which either add meaning to a Hungarian verb or change its aspect.

Szia Dugi!


Thanks for your questions!


The -né at the end of megismételné is the sign of the conditional form. Literally translated it would be: would you repeat?


Example of the verb megismétel in an accusative form (with a direct object):

megismételném= i would repeat

Megismételnéd= you would repeat

Megismételné=he would repeat

Megismételnénk=we would repeat

Megismételnétek=you would repeat

Megismételnék=they would repeat


The né at the end of the family name is used by women after marriage, if they decide to take the name of their Husband.


For example a girl whose name is Kiss Anna and who marries Kovács Tamás, can keep her name or choose from:

Kovács Tamásné

Kovácsné Kiss Anna

Kovács Anna (recently it is more common)

or the combination of these two: Kovács Tamásné Kiss Anna


nb. Children usually get the family name of their father.


If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate!?

Szép napot!

megismétel-ni = to repeat


What makes this -né at the end ? :)


megismétel-né


I remember Kovácsné means Kovács family, right ?

Szia Antonio,


Thank you for your question!


It is very interesting, the 'meg' prefix is usually used for describing acts which are finished, completed.


For ex.

I have eaten some chips.

Ettem csipszet.

I have eaten up all the chips.

Megettem az összes csipszet.


It is also interesting to note that the prefix comes from the old "mögé" which means "back". This in the case of action verbs, it can also mean "back".


The train is arriving.

Érkezik a vonat.

Megérkezett a vonat.

The train has arrived.


I will talk to him about the issue.

Beszélek vele a problémáról.

I will discuss with him the issue (from to the beginning to the end, or until we find a solution).

Megbeszélem vele a problémát.


I hope that this can help you understand a little bit more.

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate!


Jó tanulást!
