This paper discusses the use and meaning of the Hungarian morpheme -ek 'and company'. Its previous classifications are introduced, with a special comparison with the anaphoric possessive marker -e 'that of, belonging to'. It is proposed that -ek does not merely function the way its name suggests but is used for other purposes, as well. The paper discusses the items provided by English and Spanish for the function of -ek, as well as the use of the Hungarian morpheme in translations from those languages. Finally, miscellaneous examples of grammatical oddities and problems with respect to pluralisation are given, irrespective of the actual linguistic sign used
