There are 44 letters in the Hungarian alphabet, 14 of which are the vowels: a, á, e, é, i, í, o, ó, ö, ő, u, ú, ü, ű.
It is really important to write and pronounce the correct vowels in a word, and do not mix them up or write only the basic letter without the accent (a e i o u). Because in that case you’ll end up creating weird, funny and stupid sentences.
 
török [ˈtørøk] – Turkish
torok [ˈtorok] – throat
 
ebéd [ˈɛbeːd] – lunch
ebed [ˈɛbed] – your dog
eb [ˈɛb] – dog
 
bőr [ˈbøːr] – skin
bor [ˈbor] – wine
 
cipó [ˈtsipoː] – loaf; very little round bread
cipő [ˈtsipøː] – shoe

    1. Great! 🙂 By the way there is no difference between them. Kutya is more used in spoken language, but eb is more official and poetic. For example on TV news you would probably hear eb more often than kutya, but in everyday speech eb is not really used. Only in the form of öleb, which is a dog, that you always carry around on your lap, a small pet-dog.
