役割語   Role Language

やくわり ご

What is “Role Language (Yakurwarigo)?”

When we can imagine a specific profile (age, gender, occupation, status, era, features, appearance personality, etc.) from a specific language usage (vocabulary, wording, expressions, intonation, etc.), or when we are presented with a specific profile and can imagine the type of language people of that profile will probably use, this is called Role Language (yakuwarigo).
