Heh. I tried the on-line dictionaries too, but the best I could come up
with from them was something like "hurrah, hurrah, give me too", which
doesn't really make a whole heap of sense.
If you can wait a few days, it's probable that a Hungarian ex-employee will
be at our work Xmas do on Thursday night, and I could ask her then - or
maybe there's still a phone number for her in the Black Book.
My Teach Yourself Hungarian book seems to have gone walkies. :-(
