Case marking on demonstratives (Hungarian)

DemAff: Case is marked on demonstratives using suffixes.

(1) kedvel-em ez-t a zené-t.

’I like this music.’

(2) er-re a könyv-re gondol-t-ál?

det-sub the book-sub think-pst-2sg

In Hungarian, adnominal demonstrative pronouns agree in case (and in number) with their noun heads (cf. Kugler‒Laczkó 2000: 165‒168).
