Watashi has many variations: These variations are now archaic, but are still widely used in fictitious creations to represent stereotypical Kansai speakers especially wate and wai. Elderly Kansai men frequent use washi as well as other western Japan.

Uchi is famous for the typical feminine first-person pronoun of Kansai dialect and it is still popular among Kansai girls. In Kansai, omae and anta are often used for the informal second-person pronoun. Anata is hardly used.

An archaic first-person pronoun, ware , is used as a hostile and impolite second-person pronoun in Kansai. It is also the characteristic of Kansai usage of honorific suffixes that they can be used for some familiar inanimate objects as well, especially in Kyoto. In standard Japanese, the usage is usually considered childish, but in Kansai, o- imo -san , o- mame -san and ame -chan are often heard not only in children's speech but also in adults' speech.

Since Kansai dialect is actually a group of related dialects, not all share the same vocabulary, pronunciation, or grammatical features. Each dialect has its own specific features discussed individually here.

This is supposedly said as a greeting from one Osakan to another, and the appropriate answer is another Osaka phrase, maa, bochi bochi denna "well, so-so, y'know". The phrase developed among low-class shopkeepers and can be used today to greet a business proprietor in a friendly and familiar way but is not a universal greeting.

This means essentially "so-so": Also, bochi bochi H-L-L-L can be used in place of the standard Japanese soro soro , for instance bochi bochi iko ka "it is about time to be going". It was characterized by the polite speech based on Kyoto-ben and the subtle differences depending on the business type, class, post etc.

Kyoto-ben is often regarded as elegant and feminine dialect because of its characters and the image of Gion 's geisha geiko-han and maiko -han in Kyoto-ben , the most conspicuous speakers of traditional Kyoto-ben. The former was spoken by court noble before moving the Emperor to Tokyo, and some phrases inherit at a few monzeki.

Kyoto-ben was the de facto standard Japanese from until the 18th century and some Kyoto people are still proud of their accent; they get angry when Tokyo people treat Kyoto-ben as a provincial accent. For example, a famous Kyoto copula dosu , instead of standard desu , is used by a few elders and geisha now. The verb inflection -haru is an essential part of casual speech in modern Kyoto.

In Osaka and its environs, -haru has a certain level of politeness above the base informal form of the verb, putting it somewhere between the informal and the more polite -masu conjugations. However, in Kyoto, its position is much closer to the informal than it is to the polite mood, owing to its widespread use.

Kyoto people, especially elderly women, often use - haru for their family and even for animals and weather. Ise-ben is famous for a sentence final particle ni as well as de. Shima-ben is close to Ise-ben, but its vocabulary includes many archaic words. Iga-ben has a unique request expression -te daako instead of standard -te kudasai. They use the normal Kansai accent and basic grammar, but some of the vocabulary is common to the Nagoya dialect.

For example, instead of - te haru respectful suffix , they have the Nagoya-style - te mieru. Conjunctive particles de and monde "because" is widely used instead of sakai and yotte. The similarity to Nagoya-ben becomes more pronounced in the northernmost parts of the prefecture; the dialect of Nagashima and Kisosaki , for instance, could be considered far closer to Nagoya-ben than to Ise-ben.

In and around Ise city , some variations on typical Kansai vocabulary can be found, mostly used by older residents. It is famous for heavy confusion of z and d , especially on the southern coast. The ichidan verb negative form -n often changes -ran in Wakayama such as taberan instead of taben "not eat" ; -hen also changes -yan in Wakayama, Mie and Nara such as tabeyan instead of tabehen.

Wakayama-ben has specific perticles. Noshi is used as soft sentence final particle. Yashite is used as tag question. Local words are akana instead of akan , omoshai instead of omoroi , aga "oneself", teki "you", tsuremote "together" and so on. Wakayama people hardly ever use keigo, which is rather unusual for dialects in Kansai.

For example, Shiga people also frequently use -haru , though some people tend to pronounce -aru and -te yaaru instead of -haru and -te yaharu.

Some elderly Shiga people also use -raru as a casual honorific form. The demonstrative pronoun so- often changes to ho- ; for example, so ya becomes ho ya and sore that becomes hore.

In Nagahama , people use the friendly-sounding auxiliary verb -ansu and -te yansu. Nagahama and Hikone dialects has a unique final particle hon as well as de. The dialect in Nara Prefecture is divided into northern including Nara city and southern including Totsukawa. On the other hand, southern Nara prefecture is a language island because of its geographic isolation with mountains.

The southern dialect uses Tokyo type accent, has the discrimination of grammatical aspect, and does not show a tendency to lengthen vowels at the end of monomoraic nouns.
