Singlish 101

Singlish 101

Come join and learn Singlish. Don’t say we bo jio you! Not an official language, but you could get lost without it! Almost all Singaporeans understand English. They do, however, have an adorable tendency to insert some Chinese and Malay words into their string of sentences, so you’ll need to watch out for the slang.
But that’s not all. They also add ‘words’ like lah, leh, ah, meh and mah, to name just a few, at the end of sentences to give emphasis to statements (and to differentiate themselves from their colonial masters).

This is what Singaporeans proudly call “Singlish”, our informal tool for social communication. There’s an entire vocabulary list of “Singlish” words.
