Hungarian is often cited as a language with free word order. While this is not strictly true, the rules that govern the sentence structure are derived from pragmatics and are thus much more flexible than they are for analytical languages such as English. This paper presents an introductory statistical study into Hungarian word order. We report the order of verbal arguments in simple sentences in two corpora: the Hungarian Wikipedia and TrendMiner. An experimental method for ordering adjectives in noun phrases is also presented.
