      Hi Marika,

      you are right, “nászút” perfectly fits to the related words list (we just added it).

    I’m curious how you pronounce “eljegyzés.” Is the “lj” like “ly,” and sounds like “y”? And how do you combine “gy” with “z”? I haven’t come across a word with that combination before. Thanks.
