PronunciationEdit

Etymology 1Edit

From Proto-Slavic *karati (to punish, scold).

VerbEdit

кара (karaimpf (perfective искара)

  1. (transitive) to scold, reprimand
Usage notesEdit
  • Whereas this word has a general application, it is often associated specifically with children, so using it to speak of adults being scolded, e.g. by their boss, may make it sound as though they were being infantilized. A more appropriate word for adults (and serious situations in general) would be "прекорува".
