Obligatory possessive marking on nouns (Hungarian)

NoOblPxN: Possessive marking exists, but obligatory possessive marking on nouns does not exist.

In Hungarian, possessive marking is not obligatory on nouns. Some nouns have third person singular endings (e.g. fia ‘his/her son’, lánya ‘his/her daughter’, tojássárgája ‘egg yolk’). However, these are lexicalized word forms, which do not form a distinct category in Hungarian, thus there is no need to register an OblPxN parameter value.
