I happened upon a curious website with free short Hungarian-language mp3 downloads that are designed to be uploaded to your cell phone to inform you when something happens. Your friends and family will certainly be impressed with your dedication to Hungarian when they hear them!
Here are some messages that tell you when a text message (SMS) has arrived.
And here are some that are meant to be a wake-up message.
Some of them are kind of funny, but many of them are pretty weird too. I personally prefer the simple, no-nonsense type of messages, such as these ones below.
When you get a text message (download):
“Üzeneted érkezett” (“Your message has arrived”)
When you want to be woken up, you may want to hear this:
Female voice (download):
Male voice (download):
“Jó reggelt! Ébresztő! Kelj fel!” (“Good morning! Time to wake up! Get up!”)
Since this is a language-learning site, let’s break these down word-by-word!
üzeneted – your message
noun stem: üzenet – message
érkezett – (has) arrived (3rd p. singular past)
verb stem: érkezik – arrive
jó reggelt – good morning
ébresztő – (time to) wake up
This is a tricky word to translate properly. It is probably best translated into English as “time to wake up!”
verb stem: ébreszt – wake sy
kelj fel – get up (2nd p. singular familiar imperative)
verb stem: felkel – get up
