Singlish - Singapore

Manglish - Malaysia

Tinglish - Thailand

interestingly nobody ever refers to English as it is spoken in the Philippines by one of these expressions - it's always 'Philippine English'.

 

if english is spoken properly in the philippines it is called "Philippine English"

 

Proper English: "Have you finished your homework?"

 

if tagalog is spoken and mixed with little english it is called "Taglish"

Taglish: "Natapos mo na ba yung homework mo?" / "Natapos mo na ba yung assignment/asaynment mo?"

 

if english is spoken and mixed with little tagalog it is called "Englog" or also known as cono english (basterdized english)

 

Example: let's go and buy a fishball and lets tusok-tusok them.

Good Morning Forumites,

 

I once remember stumbling upon the options Taglish and English in many ATMs in Cebu. I found it very amusing to have my wife trying to translate all those weird words between her laughs of astonishment.

 

Cheers,

FF
