Occurrence of articles and demonstratives (Hungarian)

ArtWithDem: Articles may appear alongside demonstratives.

(1) a film

the movie

’the movie’

(2) az a film

det the movie

’that movie’

In Hungarian, the definite article is compulsory next to the demonstrative pronoun, if the construction unequivocally identifies a referent entity (cf. Kugler 2000b: 282‒287).
