- This book was written for the benefit of those who wish to learn more about the Hungarian language, a unique, non-Indo-European language spoken in the heart of Europe. It constitutes a journey of discovery into the nature and workings of Hungarian, supported by cultural as well as linguistic arguments which, when considered together, add up to the discovery that Hungary is Europe in a nutshell. It is a book for all those who, after admiring Budapest, the Hortobágy and Lake Balaton, will also want to become better acquinted with Hungarian, a language, which sounds like no other. It is also meant for those second and third generation Hungarians who are curious to find out more about the language of their parents and grandparents. And last but not least, it was written for the benefit of the more than 25 thousand people now living in Hungary, whose mother tongue is English.
