It also aims to present and describe multiple ways of creating nicknames, the influence of media and mass culture promoted by it. It also touches the subject of foreign elements, mainly English, penet¬rating the everyday language of young people.
This paper deals with two ways of expressing possessive relationships, their morphological make-up and the possible circumstances of their emergence. One of these is the habitive construction (`X has Y'), whereas the other is the attributive possessive construction (`X's Y, the Y of X'). The former is a clause, whereas the latter is a phrase. It will be argued that both types of constructions may have emerged in the Uralic languages without the contribution of any foreign influence, but as far as the retention of the latter is concerned, foreign influence may have had a role in it in Uralic languages that were engaged in intensive Uralic--Turkic linguistic contacts.
The study deals with two outstanding and characteristic examples of bishop's palaces of the second half of the 18thcentury, those in Veszprém and Szombathely, respectively. When considering their architectural history and interior decoration, the foreign influences apparent in these buildings, and their artistic value in the context of art in Hungary and Europe at the time, emphasis is laid on preceding historical events, the cultural background of the commissioning persons decisive for their demands, and the knowledge and experience of the participating artists.
