What is Chinglish?

1. Mandarin sprinkled with English or English with Mandarin induced syntax.

2. A portmanteau of the words Chinese and English, is any poor or 'broken' English spoken by native Chinese speakers.

3. Misshapen, hybrid language that is neither English nor Chinese but that might be described as 'English with Chinese characteristics'.

Which one do you prefer?

认为中式英语,不应当发扬,而要向真正的英语(英语国家)靠拢,因为其实所谓的"chinglish"实际上就是我们自己在学习英语中犯下的错误,导致了现在‘将错就错’的局面。而"chingilsh"即不是一 ...

语言也在发展,任何人完全可以创造一个自己的词,问题是有多少人能理解这个词的含义。如果一个人创造了一个英文单词,而全中国人民都接受,那么英语中从此便多了一个这样的词,问题是这种理想状态几乎是不可能的。
  所以我们应该学习运用英语国家的人民都熟悉的词。否则就是stylistically wrong大部分的中式英语其实在英文中已经有了现成的说法,有些说法在意思上几乎就是一对一的map过来,但由于英语词汇太多了。我们没有能够发现,而发现了的人们也没有让更多的人所知道。这就造成了现在的现象。所以大家还是有义务把地道的说法告诉给每个不知道的人。
