:) Sziasztok!

I've come across this wonderful painting by Károly Ferenczy while visiting Budapest some years ago. I searched for it on the web and when I saved the picture on my computer, the file was under the name Kkodobalo (= Kődobálók). The painting's name in English is "Boys throwing pebbles into the river", so I got really curious on what the file's name meant.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Köszönöm szépen!

    Hungary, Hungarian
    Hungarian uses inflections to express the same things as English expresses with separate words.
    In Kődobálók, for example:
    kő= stone, pebble
    dobál= throw, sling
    ó= something like participle
    k= plural
    So, literally, it would mean "stonethrowers"

    Good luck with Hungarian!:)
