Usage notes[edit]

Though zice is less commonly used than spune (synonym), the imperative form zi is used rather frequently. When used, it usually doesn't accompany a dative pronoun, instead being used alone as zi. Dative pronouns are more commonly used with the imperative spune, e.g: spune-mi, tell me or spune-le, tell them.
