But if you DO use the word for "I" there are huge variations based on politeness, status, sex and region. It's a lot of fun actually.
One word (apparently from Kyushu) for "I/me" (male, casual) is "oidon." This is fun for me because my name is Don.
So a buddy of mine calls out, "Oi, Don!"
I reply, " 'Oi, Don', 'tte...oidon?"
(Well I thought it was funny...sorry.)
Lol, that's kinda funny indeed
Btw: You guys are like fast-reply people or something
And I thank you all about caring about this question!
