And two other verbs


It’s nothing to worry about. It just might be a source for confusion. I’m talking about these verbs:

= TO BE COOKED, TO BOIL

FŐZ = TO COOK

Only one z is the difference. The verb fő only makes sense in 3rd PS and 3rd PP indefinite conjugation. The verb főz is a regular high verb with the -öl suffix in 2nd PS indefinite conjugation because it ends in z. It can have the definite and indefinite conjugation.

FŐ = TO BE COOKED, TO BOIL
3rd PS
3rd PP főnek

FŐZ = TO COOK
Indef: főzök, főzöl, főz, főzünk, főztök, főznek
Def: főzöm, főzöd, főzi, főzzük, főzitek, főzik

Note the assimilation (as usual in this kind of conjugation) in 1st PP!

Examples:

A leves már . – The soup is already boiling.
Főnek a húsok. – The meats are being cooked.
Főzöd az ebédet? – Are you cooking the lunch?
Teát főzünk. – We’re making tea.

All right. Only a few more explanation about present tense and we’re done with it. See ya next time.
