Usage notes[edit]

The dative form is used only when кой is on its own (not in front of a noun) and refers to a person. Moreover, it is dated and is replaced by на + the prepositional form (На кого да пиша, на кого дадоха наградата). In informal Bulgarian the nominative form is often used instead of the prepositional (На кой да пиша, на кой дадоха наградата). This usage is not considered standard.
