It’s Hinglish, innit?

Another language related post…

Having lived and worked in a Francophone environment for years, we often include French (or, more rarely, Kouya) words in our conversation even when there is a perfectly good English word which we could use. This phenomenon is a part of life for most people in the world who live in multilingual situations. There is a very good article on the BBC website about how English and Indian languages are combining, with sometimes amusing results. It’s worth reading the discussion at the bottom of the article, too.
