Difference between 大兄弟 and 小伙子.

Under which condition should we use one of them?


1 Answer 1


小伙子 is young guy. It's a generic term to address a young man.

大兄弟 is used in north, which sounds pretty folksy. It's used to address a man and is said by some older people. Sometimes, we make a joke to address a guy as 大兄弟.

  • 小伙子 is also used to refer to (not necessarily address) a young male, see comment #1
