I feel this gives a false idea that Hungarian word order is incredibly
difficult. I think of it like of English active vs. passive, which had been
suggested as a translation of one of the things conveyed by word order:
 - when a sentence may exist in theory both with an active and with a
   passive voice, "the correct choice may depend also on the choice of
   active or passive in preceding and following sentences"
 - "if you choose one of the two in a sentence, next sentences somehow
   have to comply with it"
.... from which we conclude: this English language is incredibly difficult!

I don't know...i think my English improved a lot. Maybe it
can not be seen on my letters but last year when i started
to write here I had problem of reading English newspapers
without heavy usage of dictionaries. Recently i could
switch from Time and Newsweek ( i didn't like their inter-
pretations of politics an life but it is  quite easy to read
them) to The Economist without problem . I tried to read it
couple of years ago but it turned out to be hopeless: its
language was just too rich to my vocabulary then.

Perhaps you are right and i should care more for the  English
grammar. I frankly admit,  i have long forgotten the basics,
the secondary school stuff. I just write.


I believe that you flamed me for different reason. I insulted
you elsewhere, another time ( i only can guess where and
when ) and you try to pay back now, on a dishonest way.
Next time if you do not agree with me on any question don't
be shy just speak out. i ain't gona go to Australia to kick your
arse because of it.

I would point to the sad events between Armenia and Azerbaijan
as a rebuttal to that point of view. Ngorno-Karabakh is not my idea
of a lasting solution. Asking for autonomy for the Hungarians in
the small isolated pockets where they are a local majority is as
practical as asking for Romanian autonomy in some sections of
Ridgewood, NY.

+ - Electronic petition to STOP FRENCH NUCLEAR TESTS (mind) VÁLASZ  Feladó: (cikkei)

Motivation and Objective of this ELECTRONIC PETITION on the World Wide 

We believe that there are many people who are troubled about the fact 
that the French Government has decided to restart nuclear tests.
However, those thoughts usually end up nowhere: they are just kept back 
deep inside the heart of individuals.

We have started this activity because we wanted to gather all of those 
thoughts and make it into a big movement. Since we thought we
should prevent this movement from splitting into pieces from less 
differences, the main sentence of the petition is

Stop Nuclear Tests!

Of course that is not enough: if you have your own view point, please 
express it to us and we will put them in the front of our list.

The objective of this activity is to stop the nuclear tests planned by 
France. To achieve this, as a collective group of people, we
will confront the President of France and the French Government with the 
fact that there are very large number of  individuals worldwide that 
their decision. To obtain our goal, we are planning to also advertize 
activity to journalists and other news media.

We would like to have every person or group around the world participate 
in this activity. If you agree with us, please help us by
letting as many people as possible know about this activity. As long as 
you tell us, you are free to introduce this activity to journalists
also. However, you may not use the list of names without our permission.

This activity was first planned to protest against the nuclear tests of 
France, but we do think we should express our feelings to other
groups that plan to execute nuclear tests. Additionally, there might be 
suggestions such as "shouldn't we boycott bying French goods?"
(although this will not be our official intention). We have made the 
"Opinions" corner for those of you who want to express those opinions.

With heart felt sentiment, we await for you to participate in this 
activity. Let's REALLY stop the nuclear tests!

Egyszer régen, még kölyök koromban én is játszottam egyszer ilyet.
Kaptam egy ilyen levelet, amiben volt egy hasonló lista, amire fel
kellett iratkozni, majd a levelet 5-6 új címre szétpostázni. Ja, és
a lényeg: a listán előtted állóknak el kellett küldeni egy képesla-
pot. A levéltől kedvet kaptam én is a képeslapgyűjtésre :) és akko-
ri kedvenc újságom ( Dörmögö Dömötör vagy valami más úttörős lap,
már nem emléxem) levelezési rovatából kikerestem az összes képeslap-
gyüjtőt, plusz írtam az egész rokonságnak, plusz csak úgy találomra
levelezési rovatokban talált címekre.Közel száz levelet küldtem szét.
Képeslapot természetesen egyet sem küldtem (lehet,hogy naďve voltam,
de hülye nem) a listán elöttem állóknak,sőt az egyik versenyző nevét
ki is cseréltem a húgoméra. Mit mondjak,egy árva képeslapot sem kap-
tam. Azóta nem hiszek a pilótajátékokban.

Again, I repeat, this is a discussion of why should Hungarians get
the privilege of having Romanians vote for them. You don't get votes
by right, you earn them. As for Romanians getting Transylvania, I see
little wrong with a compact ethnic group with fairly easily defined
borders getting its wish of independance from an abusive colonial
master. The problem comes in only when you have isolated enclaves
like the Hungarian areas right smack in the middle of Romania or
the Armenian enclave of Ngorno Karabakh.

Zwak is popular throughout Europe .. not just in Hungary. Bassically, you
drink a shot straight after a big meal, or any meal really. It helps to sooth
your stomach. There might be other uses .. but that is the one which is most
