HOW SHOULD THE HUNGARIAN LANGUAGE BE CORRECTLY CLASSIFIED WITHIN THE UGRIC LANGUAGE TAXON?
Languages of publication
The aim of this article is to consider the correct classification of the set of languages called the Ugric languages. The Ugric taxon includes Hungarian and two Ob-Ugric languages: Hanty and Mansi. However, Hungarian is so different from the Ob-Ugric languages that Hanty and Mansi should be put into a separate Ob-Ugric branch. Actually, that is only half of the step towards the correct classification of the Ugric languages. We have to insist that Hungarian is put into a separate subgroup called the Hungarian subgroup of the Ugric group, or perhaps organize a separate group inside the Finno-Ugric family.
