Article Singlish all abuzz
By: BOON CHAN, BRINA TAN,   The Straits Times  The Straits Times  (FEATURES LIFE)  22/05/2016
English for Singlish. Mr Goh, 61, says: "Not everyone who speaks Singlish can also speak English. There are those who think Singlish is English.

Article Singlish: Friend or foe?
By: SUMIKO TAN,   The Straits Times  The Straits Times  (LIFE FEATURES)  05/06/2016

Online Unnecessary to promote Singlish
The Straits Times Online  The Straits Times Online  (FORUM)  14/03/2017
March 2017 19:42:16 It is good to introduce a new double-decker bus with improved features, but it is unnecessary to promote the use of Singlish along with it (Singlish signs on new bus, can or not?; March 14). Singlish is used by people in Singapore who have missed the opportunity to master proper English. It is essentially English with Chinese syntax   (132 words)
Article Singlish makes it to Oxford
The Straits Times  The Straits Times  (LITTLE RED DOT)  20/09/2016
UP FRONT WITH ... Innovative Did you hear that some Singlish words are now listed in the Oxford English Dictionary?

Article Singlish impedes mastery of English
The Straits Times  The Straits Times  (FORUM)  27/05/2016
"alarmist" for me, and perhaps even the authorities, to think that Singlish would displace Standard English ("Singaporeans know right time, place for Singlish"; yesterday). As a teacher of English, I am concerned about the threats undermining the use of Standard English in schools, of which Singlish is but one. Our young need to be taught proper, functional   (319 words)

Article Singlish a means of efficient expression
The New Paper  The New Paper  (NEWS)  23/05/2016
HIANG Is there any need to be ashamed of Singlish? Isn't it just another way of communication among people who find that it can express what they want to say efficiently?
