Usage notes

  • Unlike in other Slavic languages (Slovene pisati, Serbo-Croatian pisati, Macedonian (pi?uva), Bulgarian ? (pi?a)), the last sense is generally not considered to be standard in Polish, and it is stigmatized as "incorrect" by Polish prescriptive authorities. The sanctioned way of expressing the "to indicate in a written form" meaning is jest napisane (passive voice of napisa?) or napisano (impersonal past).
