Hi, I'm learning Ukrainian, and want to know how to say, "How do you say." (I don't mean how do you personally say, but 'how is it said', like Como se dice in Spanish)


Thanks

Thanks!

By the way, how do you say 'How are you?' Yak spravi is more informal, right? If it is, what's the common, formal one?


Thanks

Thanks. Just 2 more: How do you say 'Close the door,' and what do you say when someone sneezes?

"close the door" would be " zachynit'dveri"(formal) or "zachyny dveri"(informal)
And when someone sneezes you can say "bud'te zdorovi"(formal), "bud' zdorovym"(informal, masculine), or "bud' zdorovoyu"(informal, feminine)
