This simple ending allows us to choose one of
something from an implied list.
To create this, we add
-ik to the item, and precede it with the definite article.
Even though an implied list means several items, the qualifier is placed into the singular.
az egyik one of (them)
a másik the other (of them)
a nagyobbik the larger (of them)
a kisebbik the smaller (of them)
melyik? which (of them)?
Here is an example:
az egyik barátom one of my friends Note how barátom is singular.
