    what or how?

    Hi

    Could you tell me what is the correct word I should start this sentence with?

    What do you call that in English? or

    How do you call that in English?

    Are both possible ? In what context?

    Thank you very much.

    What do you call that in English? - what is the name for something.

    How do you say that in English? - how is something phrased in English, (how is something done).
