How to introduce people in Croatian

The most straight-forward way of introducing somone in Croatian is Ovo je .. 'This is ...'.

You might, in a formal setting want to add 'mister' or 'mrs', which are gospodin and gospođa respectively.

Ovo je gospodin Smit 'This is Mr Smith'.

For those who are interested, the word supruga has been used for 'wife' but Žena is also commonly used. Žena also translates as 'woman' and so has a wider meaning than supruga.

The same can be said for suprug which could have been translated as muž, in for example, the following sentence njezin muž se zove Jakov 'Her husbands name is Jacob'.
