Type of first person in Japanese（日本語の一人称の種類）
The Japanese use various first-person.
This time I will introduce only a little.
わたくし[watakushi] わたし[watashi] あたし[atashi] あたい[atai] おれ[ore] おら[ora] おいら[oira] われ[ware] こちら[kochira] うち[uchi] こちら[kochira] それがし[soregashi] てまえ[temae] じぶん[jibun] ぼく[boku] わがはい[wagahai] よ[yo] せっしゃ[sextusya] おのれ[onore] ぼくちゃん[bokuchan] わて[wate] おいどん[oidon] ぼくちん[bokuchin]
Which one do you want to use?
The hiragana is for sessha. It would have been good to include what the differences are too. Something like
- わたくし watakushi 私: (humble) a very formal form of I or me, the first person singular
- わたし watashi 私: I; first person pronoun
- あたし atashi 私: (women's speech) I, used by girls and young women
- あたい atai first-person pronoun: “I”, “me” ( Considered quite effeminate. Use is generally limited to girls and young women of the Shitamachi area of Tokyo, or to workers of the red light district.)
- おれ ore 俺, 己: I, me
- われ ware 我: first person personal pronoun; I, me, oneself
- こちら kochira 此方: this person; I, me, we, us
- うち uchi 内, 中: (Kansai, informal) I, me (used by women and girls)
- それがし soregashi
- じぶん jibun 自分: oneself
- ぼく boku 僕: I (personal pronoun; implies that the speaker is a young boy or otherwise boyish)
- わがはい wagahai 我輩: I, we, us (used by males
- よ yo 予, 余: I, me
- せっしゃ sessha 拙者: (humble, archaic) me (used by males)
- おのれ onore 己: (humble) I
