While the language manual progresses systematically through the structures of Hungarian grammar, this grammar handbook, specifically adapted to the needs of French speakers, focuses on the particularities which distinguish Hungarian and French. The grammatical rules and their irregularities are illustrated and explained through ordinary and lively examples which give the student insight into trends in contemporary Hungary. This book is a new edition revised, corrected, and clarified, and it has a new and more convenient pocket format.
