新加坡 “国语” : Singlish

Chinoiseries 《汉瀚》

语文是有生命活蹦蹦的。 当年英国小岛也是’活’出 English, 其实是参 (Anglo-Saxon) Celtics, (Normandy) French, Latin三大语系的bastard language (杂牌语文), 现在却风行世界。

Singlish (新语)是 英语 融合了中(福建), 马来, 印度(淡米尔)语词汇, 语尾感叹词。新加坡人在异乡碰头, 一听到Singlish, 如见到家人的亲切 !

AH 啊 (感叹)
EH 哎 (惊奇)
Lor 啰 (随便)
Leh 叻 (恳求)
Meh 吗 (怀疑)
Hor 哦 (提醒)
Lah 啦 (朋友平輩之间才可以说: 包涵, 请等等)– *长辈上司不可用, 无礼*
