English equivalent is: How?
ATTENTION! How? corresponds with the Hungarian word only if you express mode, condition, NEVER PROPERTY OR QUALITY. Of course, there are exceptions:
How was your day? – Milyen napod volt?
If the question word How? requires a specific quality as an answer, one says: Milyen?
But now we’re interested in Hogy? Examples:
Hogy vagy? – How are you?
Hogy jöttél ide? – How did you come here?
Hogy megy a munka? – How is your work going?
There’s a longer version of this word: Hogyan? No difference between the two forms, but the short version is more in use.
The answers to the question could be: jól – fine; gyalog – on foot; lassan – slowly. These words are adverbs of manner. The possibilities to form them are quite a few! Besides, there are adverbs of manner representing this part of the speech by themselves (gyalog). Standard English adverbs of manner are formed from adjectives with the ending –ly: happily, mainly, and so on…
Hungarian equivalents are:
Next time we’ll see their use.
