Case Agreement Reference

In this case, we are not sure what word it refers to. Was his car broken or the garage was broken? Correct this error by replacing the ambiguous pronoun with a nostun. In Hungarian, verbs have a polypersonal concordance, which means that they correspond to more than one of the arguments of the verb: not only its subject, but also its object (accusative). There is a difference between the case where a particular object is present and the case where the object is indeterminate or if there is no object at all. (Adverbs have no influence on the form of the verb.) Examples: Szeretek (I love someone or something indeterminate), szeretem (I love him, she, or her, or her, specifically), szeretlek (I love you); szeret (he loves me, me, you, someone or something indeterminate), szereti (he loves him, her or her especially). Of course, names or pronouns can specify the exact object. In short, there is agreement between a verb and the person and the number of its subject and the specificity of its object (which often refers more or less precisely to the person). Pay attention to “these” and “what” pronouns. Often they are misused and cause faulty or vague Pronoun reference problems. Large reference examples are available on the next page. Pronoun`s reference errors can also be problems for beginner authors, as it`s so easy to be too rushed when you write and forget that you need to think about how clear your writing will be to your audience.

However, ambiguity can easily result from the use of a broad reference. Authors often think that readers are aware of the intended precursor, although there is more than one possibility. For this reason, it is best to use the wide reference with great care. In the example above, there is a pronomic reference error, because the pronounze has two potential precursors of noun. The very irregular verb is the only verb with more coherence than this one in the contemporary form. While, in most cases, we know how or what we are referring to, there are a few instances where confusion and errors can occur. Another type of defective pronoun/wave reference problem occurs when the authors use a pronodem without even giving a precursor to the pronopunkt. The agreement generally includes the matching of the value of a grammatical category between different elements of a sentence (or sometimes between sentences, as in some cases where a pronoun agrees with its predecessor or its reference opinion).

Some categories that often trigger grammatical chords are listed below.
