     Hungarian electronic resources FAQ

3.      Interactive services
3.1  What's available on the World Wide Web

 The following is the chapter recently removed from the main body of
the hungarian-faq. This is not yet completely re-edited for stand-alone
format, nor completing a collection of all important links has been
attempted. For more comprehensive WWW directories see, for example:
<http://www.hungary.com/hudir/>;, <http://www.hungary.com/hudir/>; or
 This version 0.2 contains some aditional links not shown in 0.1,=20
see the HTML listing appended near the end of this document!

 If you are using Hungarian interactive services from abroad (or vice
versa): please note that interactive Internet connections like WWW
may be very slow, even timing out during peak hours - try times of
lower network load when the response time is usually reasonable.

Subject: 3.1  What's available on the World Wide Web

    Nem hittem a szememnek amikor olvastam, hogy "a 150 eves torok uralom
alatt meglehetos vallas szabadsag volt Magyarorszagon".  Ez egy tipikus
tortenelmi eltorzitas amit a HUNGAY listan el lehet csusztatni, de itt nem
    A Torok hoditok szivessen lattak az olyan bevandorlokat akik
segitsegevel le tudtak verni is kormanyozni a meghoditott kereszteny
lakossagot.  En evvel nem dicsekednek.  
    Idezek egy par paragrafust (Sajnos angolul van irva.  Ha lesz idom
leforditom magyarra.  Talan valaki mas jobban le tudna forditani.) abbol a
ket oldalas reirasbol amit egy szerb professortol kuldott egy eve.  A
szerbek uldeze nem hiszem, hogy sokkal mas volt mint a magyarok uldozese.
    Ahogy olvastam ezt a leirast, erdekesnek tartottam, hogy ez a leiras a
kommunizmus uralom alatti sorsunkat is nagyon jol leirja.  Amikor irtam a
HUNGARY listan, hogy 1945-56 kozott a Himnuszt csak a templomban lehetett
enekelni, ezek hazudozonak hivtak.  Az o kicsavart logikajuk szerint
1945-1956 kozott is vallas szabadsag volt.

Itt a szerb leirasbol egypar paragrafus:

    The conquered Christian populations were disarmed and dispossessed of
all property, and were soon pressed into a condition of serfdom under
Turkish masters.  They were called "giours" and in the mass the "rayah,"
"the herd."  Whoever renounced his faith and became Modammedan was thereby
instantly naturalized into Islam, receiving the status and all the
life-chances of a born Osmanili.  That was the sole means in his power of
escaping from the subjected masses or of opening a door of opportunity.
    Certain ones among the nobles and others became Moslems, thereby
preserving their lands and castles, and authority was given to them under
the Turks as Pashas, Beys, Agas, and Saphis.  They became and were looked
upon by the people as Turks.
    In case of acts of injustice or violence suffered at the hands of
individual Turks, there was no possible redress.  The Christians were
forbidden the use of horses or camels, only mules and asses being allowed
them.  They were forbidden to ride even a mule or an ass in the presence of
a Turk.  It was not permitted that their houses should have a better
appearance than Turkish houses.
    For their faith they had much to suffer.  The clergy, few in number,
were kept in miserable conditions, and churches which had been destroyed
were not allowed to be rebuilt, the building of new churches being strictly
forbidden.  The sound of church bells was forbidden as was also the reading
aloud of the Holy Scriptures or the pronunciation of the name of Jesus
    It was not lawful to make the sign of the cross, to show a cross, or to
eat pork in sight of the Turk.
The Rayah were not allowed openly to bury their dead; Christian burials
took place at night or in secret; mourning for the dead was strictly
prohibited either by costume or by symbol or in any other way.

Who cares.  That was between you and him.  Or is this just another
attempt to side step the question I posed to you?  So cut the crap and
just answer the question: when were the Hungarians supposed to borrow
the word "fiu" from the Vlachs?

>You think that I am assuming things I am not assuming . Whatever you

Since the word has only 3 letters, the possible combinations are not
that great, thus the chance of coincidence not that small.
I am not a linguist but I can smell a nonsensical explanation when I
hear one.  And yours is just that.

Even I can come up with a better theory for the Hungarian word "fiu" than
that, just off the top of my head. How is this one for size?

The Hungarian word for youth or junior is "ifju", spelled like "ifyu" or
"ifiu".  Drop the first "i" and you've got "fiu", the word for "junior"
in the family.  BTW, the Hungarian word for "young" is "fiatal, having
the same root as "fiu".  What's the Latin word for young? Iuvenis, right?  
So there you are!  Another theory, at least as compelling as yours and 
I just picked it out of my hat. 
>And again, about your statement that " I promissed you an essay about
>the Ardeal-Erdely connection", needless to say that I didn't promissed
>you anything.You have a problem with the memory. Please check the mail. 

Did I say you promised?  I only recall that I expected it.  After all,
it was a natural extension from your valiant efforts to prove the origin
of the Hungarian words "fiu" and "karacsony".  So please, I beg you ...

Kedves Janos!
    A leveled vissza hoz egy regi szep emleket a tobb generacios Amerikai

Indiana-ban.) egy Joe Nagy nevu Magyar szarmazasu fiu ki-kereste a
bartsagomat.  Valahogyan megtudta, hogy 56-os Magyar vagyok.  En nem tudtam
Angolul, o nem tudott Magyarul, de nagyon szepen kijottunk.  Sehogyan se
tudtam meg-tanitani a neve helyes kiejteset.  Mindeg azt mondata, hogy
'Nadgzs'.  Csak annyit tudott magyarul, hogy 'aki gavaller este az legyen
gavaller reggel is'.  Edesanjatol tanulta.
    Amikor szunetunk volt akkor elvit haza Toledo-ba.  A szuleinek egy
komoly beton telepjuk volt.  Az iroda falan lattam az uzem alapitoinak a

 A szulok a nagyszuloktol tanulhattak magyarul, mert olyan izessen
