Article Singlish: Friend or foe?
By: SUMIKO TAN,   The Straits Times  The Straits Times  (LIFE FEATURES)  05/06/2016
pro-Singlish and anti-Singlish camps have strong views which they have voiced loudly over the years. Proponents see it as something unique that binds the different cultures and gives Singaporeans an identity. Interestingly, many can switch effortlessly from fluent English to Singlish and I have yet to come across anyone advocating Singlish as a   (1119 words)

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 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? And does it mean that all those people who know how to use Singlish have a poor grasp of the English language? If using Singlish is degrading, what about Singaporeans who   (118 words)

Article Stop use of Singlish among children
The Straits Times  The Straits Times  (LIFE)  28/05/2016
I refer to Singlish All Abuzz (May 22, Life). We should not encourage children to use Singlish because that will become entrenched throughout their adulthood. A child should learn to speak, read and write standard English for a better chance in life. Teachers take pains to teach children standard speech, grammar and punctuation and it is a step backwards   (1936 words)

Online Use quotation marks when using Singlish on signs
The Straits Times Online  The Straits Times Online  (FORUM)  15/03/2017
20:19:34 Although Singlish may be inappropriate in formal situations and sometimes unintelligible to people from other countries, it has its advantages, often owing to its succinctness (Singlish signs on new bus, can or not?; March 14). Tower Transit deserves praise for having considered the concerns of those opposed to the Singlish signs, by using standard   (87 words)
Article Petition to drop derogatory Singlish term from OED
By: LEONG WENG KAM,   The Straits Times  The Straits Times  (TOP OF THE NEWS)  28/05/2016
generation Singaporeans have heard of 'Chinese helicopter', much less understand its meaning. My friends and I are therefore shocked and saddened that an almost forgotten Singlish term now resurfaces in the OED, rubbing salt into an old wound that never healed." Dr Salazar, 32, who was in Hong Kong yesterday, said when contacted that she was aware   (891 words)
