    ''We call it frienship.'' or ''we call it as frienship''?

    Is the following sentence correct?
    -We call it as friendship.
    Or, should it be just
    ''We call it friendship.''

    Should it be with ''as'' or without ''as''?
    Thanks in advance...

    Correct word is 'friendship'.

    Remember that in written English, we:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with only one punctuation mark.

    Please don't use terms such as "Sir" or "Madam". It is unnecessarily formal but, if you only use "Sir" you are leaving out all the female teachers and native speakers.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
