English is a sometimes common language here in Malaysia. I say sometimes because although many Malaysians understand a substantial amount of the language, it has mutated as well. Some have called it ‘Manglish’. That is a generalization in the sense of terms I might add because there are various categories of this so called ‘Manglish’. It is safe to say that we have borrowed the English language and made it our own. As in what the American Idol judges always applaud those contestants that make the song their own, we Malaysian have done so with language, making English our own, although I’m not sure anyone would rave about it. Anyways here is one version of the ‘Manglish’ I was talking about..
