Parental advisory: the following material might be offensive to some,
although it is presented purely as academia.
"bazmeg" is compuspelling of "baszd meg"
fuck-2psg-IMPERATIVE+* perfective particle
* = there are several imperatives for the 2nd person singular:
bassza'l = [you] fuck! (no specific object)
bassza'l = [you] fuck [me/us]! (specific def obj of first person sg or pl)
baszd = [you] fuck it! (specified definite object of 2nd or 3rd person)
1st person singular versions of the above:
3rd person singular:
bassza (this one is commonly used in such expressions as "bassza meg a
kutya" - "a kutya" = "the dog")
1st person plural:
basszuk (identical to 1ppl present definite)
2nd person plural:
3rd person plural:
bassza'k (identical to 3ppl present definite)
and yes: these are all imperatives!
