Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

nazywać impf (perfective nazwać)

  1. (transitive) to call, name [+ object in instrumental or nominative = the name]
  2. (reflexive) to be called
    Nazywam się James. I'm called James (I call myself James).

Usage notes[edit]

The grammatical object (the name) is usually in nominative case for proper names, while in instrumental for titles and common nouns; this roughly corresponds to the distinction between definite and indefinite articles in English.
