どちら (rōmaji dochira)

  1. 何方: which way?
  2. 何方: which one? (usually between two things)

Usage notesEdit

  • The hiragana spelling (どちら) is preferred to the kanji spelling (何方), which is rarely used.
  • This translates to "which," but for cases when there are two alternatives. If there are three or more, どれ (dore) is preferred.
  • This is a polite word. The casual equivalent is どっち (dotchi).
