In Hungarian, there are two ways to report somebody's affirming or negating
1/ "He said yes-ACC.
"He said no-ACC."
2/ "He said that yes-
"He said that no-NOM."
Unlike English and like German, Hungarian does not routinely use sentential
echoes (such as English "Yes, he did so.") although the construction is
possible; e.g. "Yes, he acted in this way."
