- Jakob Grimm; Fairytale writer and the first German grammar scientist (XIX century):
" ...the Hungarian language is logical, has a perfect structure and surpasses every other language. ".

- N. Erbersberg; Viennese scientist (XIX century):
"In the structure of the Hungarian language, as if the assembly formed by linguists would have it that there is any regularity, firmness, consistency and clarity. "

- George Bernard Shaw; One of the most quoted playwrights in history (
"I can say with confidence - after I have studied the Hungarian language through many years - that I could have created a far more precious and worthy literary work of my life if I had had the possibility to do it by Hungarian. I claim this simply because this strange, powerfull language is the most capable to write about the differences and details of the minor, secret human emotional nuances."

- Grover S. Krantz; American researcher:
"The Hungarian language ......I find that language Neolithic transition, preceded the start of the New Stone Age  ...  all the sedentary among the Hungarian language is the oldest. "
