Primary

Father

Alternative

Dad

Word Type

noun

Explanation

Your father parent is your father.

Reading

ちちおや
Kyoko
(Tokyo accent, female)
Kenichi
(Tokyo accent, male)

Explanation

The reading here is pretty weird. It's all kun'yomi. My guess is this translates literally to "father parent" (two different words, therefore uses the other readings). You should know the readings of these two separate words, though. It is (ちち) and (おや).
