Me – how boys and men call themselves

Me – how boys and men call themselves

While girls and women call themselves 私(わたし or わたくし)most of the time (apart from regional variations),  men call themselves differently.

  • 私(わたし or わたくし)- formal
  • 僕(ぼく)- boys use this first and later learn to use other words as they grow up
  • 俺(おれ)- young men often use this in casual speech.
  • わし – older men sometimes use this in casual speech.
