Fischer in the Quaestiones Petropolitanae, de
Origine Ungrorum, and Pray, Dissertat. i. ii. iii. &c., have
drawn up several comparative tables of the Hungarian with
the Fennic dialects. The affinity is indeed striking, but
the lists are short; the words are purposely chosen; and I
read in the learned Bayer, (Comment. Academ. Petropol. tom.
x. p. 374,) that although the Hungarian has adopted many
Fennic words, (innumeras voces,) it essentially differs toto
genio et natura.
Note by the Rev. H. H. Milman 1782 (Written), 1845 (Revised)
The connection between the Magyar language and
that of the Finns is now almost generally admitted.
