disagree  Irena: "byt nastvana na sebe" is in the form of infinitive, therefore cannot be translated in first person

  -> Well, make an infinitive of it. That would be interesting.

NASTVA looks as if it's meant to be naštvaný (for a man) or naštvaná (for a woman) - annoyed, cheesed off etc.

In place of "oneself", you can insert myself / yourself / him/herself etc., as appropriate, according to context.

I suppose \"na sebe\" could also mean \"at/with each other\" - it depends on the context.

agree  Irena: I agree, although the note added later wouldn't be right if the collocation was "byt nastvana" (in feminine gender). To be angry at/with each other corresponds to "byt nastvani/e" (plural)

  -> Thank you. I didn't see the note added later, and I agree about the grammatical ending. být is of course infinitive, so it still leaves me wondering whether this is part of a longer sentence.
