Final-obstruent (de)voicing Actually I do not learn Hungarian, nonetheless I have a question. Is there such phenomenon in Hungarian language as voiced consonants become voiceless or vice versa? No matter if it happens at the end of a word or in the middle of it.Update: still no answer. Well, I guess I have asked not enough precisely. What are such cases? Could you describe them, or give me a link where I could find the material? O'course, I don't understand Hungarian, so it can be in Russian, English, German or Polish.

Yes there is.

Sorry to arrive that late, I hope I can still be useful. The answer is simply 'no'. The phonological rule demanding devoicing of the obstruents in final position does not exist in Hungarian (though it does in German and with a lot of Slavic languages).
