Hungarian (magyar nyelv listen (help·info)) is a Uralic language in the Ugric language group, distantly related to Finnish, Estonian and a number of other minority languages spoken in the Baltic states and northern European Russia eastward into central Siberia. Finno-Ugric languages are not related to the Indo-European languages that dominate Europe but have acquired loan words from them.

Just to clarify something, the Bosnian Pyramid is a hoax. The Archaeological Park: Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun Foundation is run by this guy Semir Osmanagićm, who lives in Texas. All the experts he claims are working with him - deny it. And the things he claims that they've said they deny saying, and in fact, say pretty much the opposite.

The 'ancient inscriptions' weren't there a few years ago. There are archaelogical sites around there, but dating to medieval times and so on, nothing so old as what they are claiming. There's some worry about having all these amateur teams destroying, or not recovering properly, what really IS there.

I'm Hungarian and I grow up in Budapest! At school they told us we are from the Finnish finugor family!
I hear them talking and I don't see, hear any similar sound or when u check grammar...
So I don't think so!
I learned the old ( rovàsíràs) Hungarian language at special class! And I heard they found those letters in the Bosnian piramid!
+ what ever the Anunnaki group spoke is the closest to Hungarian!
I love my language! I don't sleep english well but even I will I don't think I can tell, explain feelings as well as in Hungarian!

This is a very interesting thread. My dad's family was Hungarian. The surname is Komoromi, which I learned from my geneaology research, was a misspelling probably occurring when my ancestors entered the U.S. The original spelling is Komaromi.

The story handed down to us is that my family were gypsies. We all have dark hair and eyes and short, stout stature. Most members of the family are musically gifted.

I've often wondered about where we came from. I think I'll start some more research.

Well, I am 1/2 Hungarian. And I can say that a lot of my relatives on my Hungarian side have exotic eyes. My nephews face looks at least 1/2 oriental. Even though he is very tall, blue eyed and blond. I have other blond haired, blue eyed, oriental looking relatives also. Although most of my relatives have brown hair and blue or brown eyes. I just find it interesting that the blonds with blue eyes look the most oriental. So I guess this is another interesting aspect of some Hungarian linages. I feel perhaps the oriental roots are related to the Mongol invasion vs from where the language originated from.

Yes they miss spell it! Original is Komàromi!
Komàrom is a very pretty city in Hungary!
But I noticed something! My opinion!
If your native language is Hungarian , so hard to learn any other bc all sooooo different!
No grammar like ours....

Hungarian language in agglutanative.
Like many other languages.
Traditional Hungarian runic writing in not unique, similar alphabets were used by a number of other people, including the Duna people.
Hungarian also has strong turkish roots, but it is unlikely they are related, but ir is very likely Hungarian tribes spent many years, perhaps thousands side by side Turkic tribes.
It is a very beautiful language.
What makes it unique is the thinking as exemplified by words, and inherent cosmonology. It is at the very same time, a very rational and spiritual language.
Also of note is the highly sexual nature of Hungarian folk art, tradition, dances and music.
Very unique.
One of the unique branches of human languages.

I have read a lot of great ideas and many radiculous theories. The fact is, so far the evedence found, Arpads father was a Scythian king. Arpad of course is the founding father of the Magyars. Now, all we have to do is study the origin of the Scythians, simple enough. So, when we look at the Magyar-Hun Rovas, or runic writing, and language, we have to remember the Sumerian history of God seperating people by their tongues from Babylon. It's not religion, it's historical. The ultra terrestrials, angles, annunaki, what ever you call them had their part. To ignore this fact, will only lead you in circles. The interesting thing is that there is only a few other nationalities that came from the Scythians. In a way they are brothers to the Huns. They developed completely different languages of course, but still there is an ancient relation. Chinese has no relation, but the farmers mummies in China shows evedence that tall blonde or red haired blue eyed people lived there before the Chinese. Thats another story. So, in conclusion, the Hun blood line with a few others goes back to Annunaki, the Hun language only goes back to Babylon were every ones language goes back to the farthest. Sumerian Cuneiform is a language that no one speaks or writes since Babel. Search the Nam-Shub of Enki, it will explain the end of Cuneiform and the beginning of the worlds seperate tongues. It is two things: it is a story of linguistic disintegration, and it is an incantation which supposedly causes linguistic disintegration. To hear the tale is to lose the power of understanding speech. It tells of Enki, who "changed the speech" of the population to "put contention into it." This, of course, is similar in content to the Babel legend, where God disrupted the linguistic unity of the people in order to stop the Tower from being built. Nam-Shub, BTW is were the Huns get Nem Subod. My spelling is most definetly wrong, but, in Hungarian, nem subod means, not allowed or not supposed to. So, the Nam-Shub means Not Allowed, to speak the Sumerian language anymore. That's my $0.02

Tercüman gave us a very detailed history how the Huns became Magyars, how they invaded europe and how they settled to Pannonia later on in a second wave. He gave us direct continuity between Attila and later kings of Hungary, who he consider as one royal dinasty, and its exactly what the older codexes wrote about.

I posted this elsewhere first then saw this thread, thought it may be appropriate and so posting here as well...

I was born in Budapest, but was smuggled out as an infant. I am currently a U.S. citizen, working as a Geography professor (Cultural, World Regional, and GIS).

Although this thread is fascinating, and I am unable to academically validate or refute much that has been presented here without a substantial amount of research I presently do not have time for, I can tell you this:

As a youngster growing up, I would often listen-in on my elders discussing the "old country", Magyar heritage, origins, and the global migration that have now spread Hungarians to every remote corner of the world.

It was frequently lamented that various conquerors and other circumstances of historical significance (being on the 'wrong-side of regional and global conflicts, the assassination and subsequent demise of the Austro-Hungarian empire, etc.) have resulted in a current distribution wholly unpredicted and unexpected. Significantly, various cultural and intellectual (mathematical, scientific, literary, etc.) resources were "preserved", purposefully, so that the purity of the ethnicity and anthropomorphic paradigm would be maintained even though the political and territorial "roots" were slowly being diluted.

On more than one occasion, I can recall an uncle, grandfather, or other elder relative say something to the effect that "...our Sumerian ancestors would be proud", or that "...we must continue the goals and ideals of the Mesopotamian ancients for eternity".

I always found such comments amusing and usually rolled my eyes, thinking these profound utterances were just the Palinka or Tokaji (liquor) talking. It was just entertaining to me to hear them speak like that. We used to do a lot of family camping with other Hungarian friends and relatives, and it seems these 'men-folk' would do a lot more of this chatter around a campfire late at night with a little brandy-fuel as lip-lubricant than they ever did in the confines of their homes. There was nothing I enjoyed more than lying awake in my tent listening to this talk through the canvas to the fire-ring a few feet away.

Anyway - not sure how much of this stuff was genuine and how much was 'old guys reminiscing' - but this thread sure brought some of those memories flooding back in.

P.S. thanks for all the links and opinions here (OP et al). If nothing else, they provide starting points to further information and analysis. I hope the truth about this intriguing origin story will eventually be known...

a reply to: Byrd

Byrd, sorry but you made some mistakes in your post. The Sumerians ARE NOT SEMITIC people. It's been determined that it's not Indo- European either; the Archeologists, Historians and Linguists shortly after it's discovery placed it in the Turanian group (modern name: Ural-Altaic group.) They almost unanimously agreed that of all those languages it's closest relative is ancient Hungarian. Several of those researchers actually spent time in Hungary to perfect their Hungarian language skills. Later a sort of "silent agreement" has developed that scolars would stop searching for related languages for various reasons.
The other important error: you stated that Hungarians had had no writing system or alphabet before adopting the Latin Alphabet. Actually, Hungarians were not illiterate; they used what was called "Rovás Írás", in English: Runic Writing. It is similar to the Old German writing in principal; however, the letters are different and specifically based on the Hungarian sound system. Every sound has its own letter so spelling is no challenge as opposed to Western Indo- European languages such as English. Several of the letters can be traced back to to Sumerian Cuneiform signs.
After adopting Western Catholicism Popes ordered the people of Hungary to stop using the pagan "Scythian" writing and burn or destroy everything with Runic Writing on it. However, many people kept using it, especially the Székely (Sakai) in Transylvania until the 20th Century. After the Communist Government and system collapsed it became fashionable again; with slight changes, mostly some simplification, many Hungarians attending schools to learn their ancestors' spiritual and cultural treasure.

a reply to: C.C.Benjamin

You are right that Byrd made some errors in his post, so I replied and pointed out the two most serious ones
1. Sumerians (or rather their language) were not Semitic and not Indo-European. Right after the discovery of the clay tablets with Cuneiform writing under the sand, of course initially they all thought a Semitic language and people were found: it is the Middle East for Pete's sake. It was soon determined that it was a unique languge, people and culture from thousands of years ago. Soon they placed the language in the Turanian group of languages, which is today called Ural-Altaic. Most researchers also agreed that its closets modern relative, also probably its descendant, is the ancient language of Hungarians. That had been the prevalent scholarly view for decades until they stopped researching descendant and/ or related modern languages of Sumerian.
2. The Magyars at the time of their conquest of the Carpathian Basin (Hungary) were not illiterate. The alphabet they used is called Runic Writing that's about as unique as their language that had been called both Scythian and Hunnic. However, after they had adopted Catholicism and dropped their old religion which was very likely a later version of the the VERY ancient Magi faith, the Vatican ordered to destroy anything and everything l with the "pagan, Scythian" writing on it. The different tribes of the tribal alliance may have practiced different versions of that religion. As at least 2 or 3 tribes of the alliance were Parthians and Subarians, it's probably a safe assumption that Manichaeism was prevalent among those tribes as Mani was Parthian born. Both the Magyars and Parthians, or at least a good portion of them, had had very ancient ties to Media. Before Media, the region had been called Mada in Sumerian and originally they had used to speak the main Sumerian dialect Emeghir.

Jewish or Christian Hungarians? It doesn't really tells the whole story. It was an EXCELLENT education system and a unique, challenging but pretty logical language that turned out those citizens of Hungary to go on and invent, discover and/ or produce things.
The team of Hungarian scientists working on the Manhattan project really was the target of envy and admiration. When somebody asked the lone (I think) Italian on the project, Enrico Fermi, if he believed in alien life- forms, Fermi replied: "they are already here... they are called Hungarians."
Also, I have read about this very interesting and telling little "story 0" years ago and just now searched for it online - but no luck. So I'm just going to describe it in non- specific terms.
I think it was Albert Einstein who was asked to explain the Hungarian team members' apparent talent, intelligence, knowledge and success. Einstein answered without much hesitation: *If you can learn Hungarian, you can learn anything.* I think he absolutely hit the nail on the head. Again, I may have made a mistake in the identity of the characters; and of did I apologize.
The book ",The Bell Curve" published over twenty years ago concludes that Jews generally have higher IQ than other populations, so that may be factor in the equation.

a reply to: Hanslune

"Being isolated... They do not talk to each other... Conviction that they alone are right..."
I could not have defined them better myself; it perfectly describes all but at least most Sumerologists today.
One of most renowned and respected Sumerologists expressed the growing frustration with not being able to get cooperation from many colleagues, seeing that many of them are clearly going in the wrong direction (I'd say some of them are doing this on purpose,) said this: "There are as many Sumerian languages as there are Sumerologists..." Which is, and has been, a humongous problem.
It should be pointed out that this field requires a great deal of talent, patience, never ending education, knowing several dead and also modern languages and a lot more. Very- very few people are suited for the job. There is not only academic but also political pressure for obvious reasons: many politicians, educational administrators and all kinds of others want the scholarly and educational equivalent of the old political "bringing home the bacon" for prestige, money and advancement. Related to, especially being a successor of, Sumerians would be the mother lode in many circles.
Where am I going with this? Well, since this is a forum debating the History of those ever more mysterious MAGYARS, many of us know that since the discovery of the Kiengi nation and their Emeghir language, it's been a constant frustration for HUNGARIANS, at least more than for any other nation. In the first few decades (almost) everything and everybody echoed admiration, respect, curiosity for the "closest relative" of the ancient Kiengi nation in ancient Mesopotamia.
But then the academic "Powers that be" dropped the praise for no apparent reason, other than "let's not indulge" and waste time with comparative studies; Sumerian will be a language isolate so we can concentrate on decoding it without the unnecessary noise. We can do a surgery on the Emeghir language, or since it's been dead for several Millennia, let's do autopsy and we'll never have to stop working on the patient. And those Magyars can wait as long as it takes. That's what they have been doing anyway since time immemorial. Ànd should we finish the autopsy by rushing and figuring out everything about the patient our job will be over and we'll be fired before we can say BOO!
