Hungarian is an agglutinative language
, which lends it a rustic, ancient character. It is also a very effective means of communication, as it enables the expression of nuances that are glossed over in the English language. Hungarian is a melodious language, with a vowel to consonant ratio of 100:141 (the same as French).
I've got some audio to share. The first is a video that was filmed to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the Duna national television station. The first few scenes attempt to display Hungary as a multicultural haven (which, luckily, is not the case). I'mcurious as to why this was done, althoug later scenes seem to nullify such an ideal in favor of traditional culture:DUNA televizió születésnapi himnusza
This is a recording of a poem by Petöfi Sándor. A little overdramatized, perhaps, although characteristic of our performance style:"Dreadful Times"
