Hungarian is the national language of Hungary. It is a Finno-Ugric language, unrelated to most other languages in Europe ( it does not belong to the Indo-European family), and as such it has always been of enormous interest to the linguists. The language is also used by Hungarian minorities in neighbouring countries.
