The Hungarian Parliament approved on Monday the construction of a fence along the border with Serbia as a measure towards reducing the influx of refugees.

Hungarian MPs also adopted amendments to several laws relating to migration and asylum, Daily News Hungary informs.

The bill, which was submitted by Hungary's Interior Minister Sandor Pinter, was adopted with 151 votes in favour and 42 against.

The new legislation will accelerate procedures for assessing the claims of asylum-seekers and will allow for economic migrants to be turned back as quickly as possible.

The amendment also foresees for simplifying the current two-tier asylum process by combining the two phases of investigating the asylum-seeker's identity into a single step.

The legislation will also limit the right for those, who have submitted asylum requests multiple times, to stay in Hungary while their requests are being processed.

Deputy group leader of ruling Fidesz party said that the construction of a fence would contribute to European security and pointed to similar facilities in Bulgaria and Spain, which have considerably reduced the number of migrants.

The fence is projected to have a length of 175 kilometres.

Again as far as I know the distinction between "Valahs" and "Vlahs" is missing also from the Eastern Slavic languages, not only from Bg and Serbian.

Regional, North Dobruja (currently in Romania) newpapers, Bg secret services and not only them (amongst Bulgarians) should keep an eye on them:

Bg mlad = CzechoSlovak mlad? = Polish m?ody
Bg vlah (plural vlasi) = Slovak Valasi (plural), Czech Vala?i (plural, interesting plural difference from Slovakian, btw) -- singular valah (there might be one acute accent on one of those two "a" 's in either Czech/Slovak or both, however that's irrelevant to the discussion) = Polish Wo?och, plural Wo?ochy
CzechoSlovak vlah = Polish W?och = Italian
As anyone can see the word for Italian in Polish and CzechoSlovak is the initial one since it has no vowel inserted between the first 2 consonants of the word. That's only natural and in line with the phonetic rules of those 2/3 languages but also (in this case) with the phonetic rules of Bulgarian and Serbian.
In order to distinguish the newer Romanian ethnicity from the already-known, older one, those 2 (3) languages had to come up with new words and they did it by adding a vowel between the first 2 consonants of the respective words.

GrueFski - 18 Jul 2015 // 23:39:16

Polish sg. W?och/plural W?osi = Italian(s)
the old word for Romanian(s) is Wo?och, plural Wo?ochy, which (as anyone can see) is much regular than the plural of W?och, a clear indication that it is a more recent word.
Italy = W?ochy
Old name for Romania or the Wallachian part of it = Wo?oszczyzna

GrueFski - 18 Jul 2015 // 23:25:42

I don't know about Ukrainian, Belarusian and Russian. Is there an outdated word for Italians similar to "vlohi" because there is one for Romanians "volohi" or something

GrueFski - 18 Jul 2015 // 23:24:16

Polish words Wlosi and Wolosi seems to indicate that they found out about Romanians' existence first, and only then about the Italians, however a closer linguistic analysis will give the same results as the ones in CzechoSlovak and Hungarian languages.

Visegrad languages are the official languages of the V. countries. Don't play stupid or are you that stupid?

Gianni - 17 Jul 2015 // 13:12:03

What the hell is Visegrad languages, man? Chechs slovaks, and polish speak Slavic language. Hungarian is hungarian, much different language, not slavic.

Visegrad language does not exist.

Well Bulgaria is going Gypsy (in the sense of becoming, turning)

It's not so much where you come from; it's where you're going that counts.

GrueFski - 17 Jul 2015 // 00:02:07

Who said anything about "Visegrad countries"? I said "Visegrad languages"
Bulgarians are not Bulgars even though there is a single word for both of them in Bulgarian.
Scythians were Iranic
Huns were not Iranic
predecessor or successor???
Checs, Plolish, Russans -- wtf???

Gianni - 16 Jul 2015 // 22:49:11

Educate yourself. Visegrad countries are a political term. In fact Hunarians are the predecessors of Huns, and Scythians, ancient nomadic Asian culture. (Originally Bulgarians too, so they are brothers, but u lost your origins, language, and became Slavic).

Checs, Slovaks, Plolish, Serbs, Russans, and Bulgarians today are all Slavic.

GrueFski - 7 Jul 2015 // 22:16:00

The fact that Bg and Sb languages have not developed 2 different yet very similar and etymologically related words for naming Romanians and Italians is not relevant when it comes to the fact that Hungarian, CzechoSlovak and Polish had to find a secondary (time-wise) word, very similar to the one they had been using for naming Italians (or many Romance speakers in general???), to name an ethnicity the existence of which they have only found about later (Romanian ethnicity). Of course Romance Dalmatian speakers were unknown to Hungarians, CzechoSlovaks and Poles (because of the sheer geographical distance) or they did find about their existence, but only even later (compared to their finding-out about the Romanians' existence).
Interestingly the old Slovenian word for Romanians(/Italians/Dalmatians/2 or 3 of them?) was lasi, without the initial "v-" (a non-Slavonic trait apparently, a result of German/Romance influence???), they even have a town called Lasko in Slovenia. Compare to Romanian vlastar and lastar, both meaning offshoot, offspring.

If almost 40 km of water cannot keep the invaders out of the UK, I am not sure that even a very substantial well guarded electric fence will keep them out of Hungary
