Usage notes edit

  • The more usual form is z, while ze is used before words starting with s, z and certain consonant clusters.
  • In certain contexts (in the meaning "out of the surface" or "down from the surface") the preposition s, which normally requires instrumental case, can be used synonymously requiring the genitive case. This use of the preposition s is dated though and is mainly seen in older literature.
    • spadnout z/s kopceto fall down the hill
    • sundat něco ze/se skříněto take something off the cupboard

    Ten pręt jest z żelaza.This rod is made of iron.
    Ten pręt jest ze stali.This rod is made of steel.
    Pochodzę z Francji.I come from France.
    Pochodzę ze Szwecji.I come from Sweden.
  • Both z and ze can be used before sobą.
