It can also mean "I will call them"
True. Thanks for the contribution!
I was like sitting there looking for the word "will."
right?! i was wondering where the word "will" was. "I call them" is so unnatural and weird
Is this 呼び?
Does this refer specifically to calling with your voice, or can it also be used for a phone call? (Other uses??)
Make a phone call is でんわをかける
Is that the same かける as 眼鏡をかける? In both cases your putting something against your face.
How can i know that its "i call them" and not "they call"?
Since there is no topic, it is implied that I is the topic. を gives the relation between the boys and the act of calling, and it says that the boys are being called rather than calling
So if it was は instead of を it would be "they call"?
Is this specifically male?
Gee, why not "I call the my boyfriend"? /s
かれらを呼ぶ (plain, the を may be dropped when used colloquially.)
This is to call out to someone. For phoning 電話する (でんわする) can be used.
I dont understand why it is を instead of に? In another very similar sentence it is に that is used to indicate the person/thing the call is being directed at —> ホテルに電話をかけます (i will call the hotel)
