続々ぞくぞく vs. 次々つぎつぎ: Subtle Differences in Word Choice

What is the difference between “続々ぞくぞく” and “次々つぎつぎ“? They have subtle differences. Which one are many things or people? After reading this, you would be answering this question. Let me introduce what their subtle differences are and how you correctly use them such as native speakers today!




続々ぞくぞく (zokuzoku) / 次々つぎつぎ (tsugitsugi)

Continuously, One after another / 纷纷, 不断 / 속속, 계속 / Liên tiếp, Lần lượt

続々ぞくぞく / 次々つぎつぎ” mean “Continuously or One after another” and which has been used as the meaning of “actions are done or things happen with very little time between them”. Ordinally, “続々ぞくぞく” and “次々つぎつぎ” the same meaning. They have the subtle differences that an image of “続々ぞくぞく” is “There is no end” and “Continuously and One after another”, whereas an image of “次々つぎつぎ” is just “Continuously and One after another”. So, using “続々ぞくぞく” indicates much more things or people than using “次々つぎつぎ“. The basic way to use to them is “続々ぞくぞくに/と___(things/people)が___(verb)する” and “次々つぎつぎに/と___(things/people)が___(verb)する”. Native speakers often omit “と/に”, so “続々ぞくぞく___が___(verb)する” and “次々つぎつぎ___が___する” which sound Japanese-ish. Furthermore, when native speakers use “続々ぞくぞく” in the sentence, they got pretty surprised at something than using “次々つぎつぎ“.
