ウキウキ NihonGO! Lesson #20 Q&A Part 5
Welcome to Uki Uki NihonGO! + Culture

Q: Is "boku" only for use by men?
A: While "boku" is primarily used by men, it could be heard by females on rare occasions. However, words such as "I" and "you" are often omitted in Japanese.
Watashi - most common form of "I", it is gender neutral and polite
Boku - mainly used by boys and some men, rarely used by girls (possibly used to sound more "boyish")
Ore - used by men, most "unfiltered" (similar to "guy talk", used among peers, very casual)
Please look forward to future episodes on Japanese language and culture! Let us know what you think and what you'd like to learn about!
