At first, I agree the view of this person, but not whole as what she/he said. I think English cannot be a threat to Chinese. It has not the power. We all know that power of a language is based on the economy of the country. When Britain and US were at their peak, English couldn’t have threat Chinese, how can it now?

I also feel sick when some singers and actors speak out some English words when they are speaking Chinese. And it’s not literally beautiful to mix English words in Chinese article. But the words like CDI, GDP have been accepted by most people, they are clear and short expression of a concept. I think these words can be used.

Foreigners even accept Chinglish. It shows how strong Chinese is. It is a threat to English. For this issue, I think it can be discussed on internet. But it’s no needed to promote in CPPCC. The deputies should give more proposals related to our people’s living.


Preventive measures needed to preserve purity of Chinese

BEIJING: With more and more publications mixing Chinese with English, measures and regulations should be adopted to avoid English invading Chinese, suggested Huang Youyi, director of the China International Publishing Group.

"If we don't pay attention and don't take measures to stop the expansion of mingling Chinese and English, Chinese won't be a pure language in a couple of years," said Huang, who is also a member of the CPPCC National Committee and secretary-general of the Translators' Association of China.

Highlighting the danger of Chinese culture becoming diluted and assimilated if the process continues, he warned: "In the long run, Chinese will lose its role as an independent linguistic system for passing on information and expressing human feelings."

Huang was referring to a popular phenomenon in China, in which English words are interwoven in articles and conversations.

For example, abbreviations such as GDP (gross domestic product), CEO (chief executive officer), CPI (consumer price index) regularly feature in publications.

There is no such thing as 'purity' in a modern language - forget that dream!

Compare a new Chiense dictionary with a 17th century dictionary and count the neologisms created overthe past three  ...

Oh, my friend, he must give up his original nationality before joining the party. What's more, the CPPCC stands for Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, no foreiners could take part.
