    Dear valued Members, due to the conversion to a new forum software a lot of threads in the 日本語 section display garbled Japanese characters. We are aware of the situation and work hard on resolving this issue. As all the corrections need to be done manually, this will take some time. We thank you for your patience and understanding!

    Dear native English speakers,

    I was reading a magazine when my mother called me.

    About the sentence above, does it mean that "my mother" phoned me or call my name?

    It could mean either one but my assumption would be phone if there is no additional context.
