People sought to synthesise the intuitive Ugric feeling (Leete 1994:92) that was considered to lay scattered in the depths of the archives as well as in the ways of life and thinking of the kinsfolk living in the vast expanses of Russia.
This led firstly to the studies of folklore and the kindred nations, to the reassessment of earlier opinions, to attempts to understand and revive the values and knowledge contained in the folk tradition, to synthesise these and adapt these into the contemporary environment and society.
It was in no way a wish to return to the cave, but unlike the academic research work, they tried to familiarise themselves with the world of the tradition, to sense it, to apply or try out what they had learned.

 Origin of Finnish and related languages — Virtual Finland
In particular, the link between Hungarian and the Ob-Ugric languages spoken on the Siberian side of the Ural Mountains has been (and still is) considered uncertain, but from a purely linguistic viewpoint the relationship is indubitable.
Thus, the Ugric group contains Hungarian and also the Ob-Ugrian languages of Khanty and Mansi, both spoken over an extensive area of westernmost Siberia, along the Ob and its tributaries.
These groupings are based not so much on kinship and mutual intelligibility as on historical innovations that separate languages from other branches and language groups in the language family.

 The Hungarian Language
For long it has been believed that Hungarian belongs to the Ugric branch of the Uralic language family based on a relatively large number of words of Finno-Ugric origin in the language.
Hungarian, like other Finno-Ugric languages is agglutinative, which means word meanings are modified by adding different and multiple endings or suffixes to the words, rather than using prefixes like, for example, in English.
