Global Language Monitor: Many Chinglish into English
font size    

English as a global language has been affected by the rise of China.

Research shows with the impact of "Chinglish", the vocabulary of English language will increase to one million this summer, China News Service reports.

There are reports saying that many new English words are "Chinglish" such as "kweerboy", "drinktea" and "torunbusiness".

Paul JJ Payack, President of the Global Language Monitor (GLM), said Chinglish and other mixed English have enriched the English vocabulary, which has now 986,120 words according to latest estimation.

The California-based GLM added to their base 20, 000 new words in the English language last year, twice as many as one year earlier, and 20 percent of them are Chinglish.
