    I tried and tried, but I could not bring up the old Konglish thread I started a few years ago. Therefore, I'll start this new thread devoted to that, or close relatives sucg as Janglish,Singlish etc.

    Creative . Cultural. Interactive

    Our consensus is opened in everything.

    We read the period in a cultural art.

    We find the old man of the creation in this modeungus.

    There are actually websites and blogs dedicated to Japlish (or Engrish--whichever you prefer!), and they are amusing.

    Here's one spotted on a t-shirt in Tokyo:

    "Our FAVOLITE collective groove: monkey people
    the main reason is, we are all people"

    Monkey people? Well, they're my favorite kind of people, too!

    The following examples are from an English exam.These sentences are found in story selections and are supposed to be correct.

    The dog brought water with his body from the river nearby.

    The little boy pull his hand in the jar and grabbed a big,big handful.

    Nobody had bought any of her during all the long day;nobody had even given her a copper.

    A doctor once advised him that if he ate a beef,his illness would be cured.

    Koreans are Krazy about English!But sometimes their powers of discernment are weak.Kyobo is a big bookstore outfit here.A couple of weeks ago I looked at one of the Englishee books which was prominently displayed.It's called :Dynamic Expressions In American English by Albert H.S.Park.There is a handsome picture of him on the flyleaf.He went to college in America and received a degree.So that gives him entitlement to write a very bad book which Koreans will make a best-seller.

    First of all,no legitimate native English speaker was consulted.Yet because he had some of his education in America they feel that qualifies him to publish a book which purports to help them with English.

    The book is littered with crass profanities.I will not give any examples of his use of dirty words.But believe me -- they are on nearly every page.It's revolting.

    So,aside from the indecent examples I will give instances of his very poor command of English.

    A. Knock it off man.
    B. I'll knock it off when I'm done for the day.

    I have a red penny.Sorry pal.

    I always watch my spendings.

    He's my homes.

    He's not with us no more.

    Who's beating?Who's in the favor?

    I woke up with my whole leg in sleep.
    I slept too deep that I didn't even realize my leg muscle was jerked.

    Albert's high quality joke gave everyone goose bumps.

    Stop being prude.

    snow mixed with rains

    My body sores.

    I want to have it away with you.

    I went down the flame.

    I'm squint.

    Is she your senior?

    He got kicked out of highs chool.[Typo example]

    He's my sport.
