The question is this:

How do you call in your language the nail and hatchet?

In Ukrainian it is цвях & сокира.



Mod note: please use proper capitalization and punctuation

    Polish:

    nail = gwóźdź (we have a word ćwiek as well, but it is a specific kind of nail)
    hatchet (or rather axe) = siekiera (a big one is called topór)

    nail: ексер/ekser (from Turkish)
    hatchet: секира/sekira

    My parents use only чаваo/čavao for nail (they pronounce it čaval, L hasn't become /o/ in this word, at least not for them).

    Czech:

    nail = hřeb, hřebík, hřebíček;
    cvok, cvoček (from German) is a special kind with a big head used e.g. by the cobblers or on the jeans pants/jackets;
    the word hřeb is probably related to žreb (drawing lots);

    hatchet = sekera, sekerka or sekyra, sekyrka;

    Czech:

    nail - hřebík

    hatchet - sekyra or sekera

    sekera is more used in spoken language than sekyra
