Summary/Abstract: I have collected signs in a given settlement in Beregszász. The settlement also becomes important as the Subcarpathian Hungarians are concentrated in the district of Beregszász, and thus the city has an outstanding role in the life of local Hungarians. The analysis of the linguistic landscape collected in the settlement is suitable for capturing the minority fate of Hungarians and for the demonstration of their language use possibilities. In linguistic landscape studies, multiethnicity is a very important aspect, and since more than one ethnic group lives in Beregszász it is even more justified to present the linguistic landscape of the chosen settlement. In my study, I analyse the language landscape in the settlement with two analyses (collected in 2013 and 2017), and I analyse the experiences of a landing-place fair in the context of language and economy.
