Movement away: surfaces

This is the Movement AWAY FROM the suffixed word movement away from member of the triad, applicable to surfaces.


Movement towards the suffixed word Tett könyvet az asztalra. He put a book onto the table.
Static position Aztán a könyv az asztalon volt. Then the book was on the table.
Movement AWAY FROM the suffixed word Azután, vitt könyvet az asztalról. After that, he took a book from the table.


Generally, flat surfaces use this triad: table, street, face, etc.

Most Hungarian cities and Hungary itself use this case:

  • Budapestre megyek. I am going to Budapest.
  • Budapesten vagyok. I am in Budapest.
  • Budapestről jövök. I am coming from Budapest.
  • Magyarországról vagyok. I am from Hungary (i.e. I am Hungarian).

Talking "about" something

When we want to express that we are talking about something, we use this delative case.

Josine mindig semmiségekrőől beszél. Josine always talks about nothing.

Note that Hungairans do not take photographs of something, they take photosgraphs about something.
itt egy fénykép rólam. here is a photo of (about) me.

Note that they do not think about something, they think "onto" something"
