This paper deals with recent alternative theories of linguistic relationship dealing with Hungarian language, concerning the most recent ones. In the introduction, an overview of comparative linguistics and the object of its study is given. In that context the Finno-Ugric studies - the main source providing the evidence for the linguistic relationship (and the identity) of Hungarian to the Finno-Ugric language family - are mentioned, employing the already well-established phonological and morphological reconstruction methods from the Indo-European studies. Furthermore, a basic and concise overview of the Uralic peoples and languages is provided, with a special emphasis on Hungarian. An overview of evidence for theories and assumptions on when and where the Hungarian came from to today's area in the Carpathian Basin has been identified. A general analysis by using reconstruction methods for the Finno-Ugric proto-language, and assumptions on what that language looked like from a Hungarian studies' point of view is offered. The focus of the second half of the paper is on the above-mentioned recent, most popular alternative linguistic theories, in which an attempt to try to unmask them by employing rational evidence provided by the (comparative) Finno-Ugric studies and numerous other reaserch was made.
