Etymology[edit]

Kanji in this term
おれ
Hyōgaiji
kun’yomi

From Old Japanese. Found in use mostly from ancient times until roughly the Heian period,[1] used to refer in the second person to social inferiors or to insult.[1][2][3]

The second person sense of you appears to be obsolete in modern Japanese.

Not to be confused with the modern term (ore) with the first person sense of I, me. See for that sense.
