特徴とくちょう vs. 特長とくちょう: Most People Don’t Know How to Use Them

What is the difference between “特徴とくちょう and 特長とくちょう“? Which is used as the meaning of “a strong point”? 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!




[wp-svg-icons icon=”checkmark-circle” wrap=”i”] 特徴とくちょう (tokuchou)

[wp-svg-icons icon=”arrow-right-2″ wrap=”span”] Characteristics / 特征 / 특징 / Đặc trưng

特徴とくちょう” means “Characteristics” and which has been used as the meaning of “unique qualities that make something or someone different from others”. The basic way to use it is “Aの特徴とくちょうはBだ。(The characteristic of A is B.)”, etc. For instance, “このテレビの特徴とくちょうちいさい画面がめんだ。(The characteristic of this TV is a small screen.)”, etc. The tips for using it are that “特徴とくちょう” is used as the meaning of “UNIQUE POINTS FROM OTHERS” which is used for both “GOOD and BAD meaning”. Everybody could use it both in daily conversations as casual and in business situations as formal, such as “このテレビの特徴とくちょうちいさい画面がめんだよ。(The characteristic of this TV is a small screen.)” as casual and “このテレビの特徴とくちょうちいさい画面がめんです。(The characteristic of this TV is a small screen.)” as polite and lastly, “このテレビの特徴とくちょうちいさい画面がめんになります。(The characteristic of this TV is a small screen.)” as formal. We’re not sure if a small screen is good or not, however, it’s a unique point. That is “特徴とくちょう“.
