обня́ть (obnjátʹpf (imperfective обнима́ть)

  1. to hug, embrace
  2. to engulf, envelop

Conjugation[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

  • This is more of a transitive verb in the sense of one person hugging another, and not necessarily a shared or mutual hug implied in the plural conjugations of the English verb (we hugged (each other), you hugged (each other), they hugged (each other), etc.). For implication of mutual hugging, see обниматься.
