Hungarian Words - Money And Expense

Money

Below Tünde and I have spoken many Hungarian words whereby we have purposely slowed down each word, syllable-by-syllable, so that you know how each syllable should be pronounced and how each word should be spoken as a whole; hopefully improving your learning and speaking of Hungarian.

Play each word twice or more, looking at its syllable notes at the same time, as the first attempt to play a word may be hindered by buffering; plus the fact you need to hear a syllable/word more than once anyway.

PÉNZ (MONEY) - PAINS

    

VALUTA (CURRENCY) - VOH-LOO-TOH

    

FORINT (FORINT) - FOH-RINT

    

EURO (EURO) - EH-OO-ROE

    

ÉRME (COIN) - AIR.R-MEH (AIIRRR - With an accent)

    

ÉRMÉK (COINS) - AIR.R-MAKE (AIIRRR - With an accent)

    

APRÓPÉNZ (CHANGE / SMALL MONEY) - OP-ROE-PAINS

    

NOTE: Hungarians used APRÓ (OP-ROE) instead of COINS (ÉRMÉK) when talking/asking about loose change. VAN APRÓD (VOHN OP-ROAD) - Do you have any small change (loose change)?

KÉSZPÉNZ (CASH) - CASE-PAINS

    

PÉNZTÁRCA (WALLET/PURSE) - PAINS-TAHRT-SOH - C is the spit (TS) sound, so just say TART-SOH instead.

    

Note: Irattárca (E-ROT-TAHRT-SOH) is officially Purse and Pénztárca is officially Wallet, but in Hungary they use Pénztárca (or just Tárca) for both; basically to mean money holder. Gender is not really an issue.
