Abstract [en]

Hungarian prefers indirect insertion of copied verbal stems. The fewcounterexamples of directly inserted verbal stems indicate a high degree ofintimacy due to intensive contact or relatedness. András Róna-Tas and ÁrpádBerta’s work West Old Turkic published in 2011 gives a list of over thirty Turkicverb stems that were inserted directly into Hungarian during the historicalperiod from the sixth to the tenth centuries when Hungarians lived in closecontact with Turkic-speaking tribes. The paper discusses the role of perceivedformal and functional equivalence in copying and discusses the question of howthe evolvement and the irregular pattern of the Hungarian ik-conjugation can beseen in relation with credible copying processes between West Old Turkic andAncient Hungarian.
