Abstract:

Day-to-day use of English has impacted local languages everywhere, spawning the growth of variants such as India's Hinglish and Singlish in Singapore. Do these variations undermine language, or do they enrich it? This program examines the emergence of hybrid forms of English and discusses their pros and cons. A push by the Singapore government to promote Standard English was met with fierce, pro-Singlish resistance. And in the European Parliament members objecting to the institute's adoption of "Euro English" believe, as do English-opposers in Africa and Asia, that the language will impart foreign values and ultimately erode what it is that now makes each nation unique.
