Singliophile Calm One, sick and tired of Ang Mohs mangling our Singlish, has come up with a brief but detailed lesson on grammatical Singlish.
With such fine teaching, Ang Mohs and Singaporeans who fake Ang Moh accents can now speak Singlish correctly.
Jay Calm One says, "let's join our hands together and Speak Good Singlish!"
Some of us lose control of our bodily functions when we hear an ungrammatical sentence.
Like the other day when I heard someone ask,
"Don't want lah?"
The annoying can't-speak-grammatical-Singlish-but-thinks-he-can ang moh really should have asked, "don't want meh?"
Some of these ang mohs have absolutely no respect for our culture, deriding us with their mocking and condescending attempts at producing phrases with Singlish particles, without any appreciation for the intricate nuances of Singlish or its grammar, as if peppering a "lah" here or a "loh" there would magically turn them into speakers of good Singlish.
