WORRY no more! The Coxford Singlish Dictionary can help you fit in with everyday Singaporeans. Study it, and you too can impress your friends by swearing like an Ah Beng! Advocates of proper English may find this book useful in teaching their kids how not to speak. Singlish is the uniquely Singaporean vernacular blend of English and local (mostly) Hokkien, Malay and Tamil terms. Often (unfairly) maligned, Singlish actually involves a lot of very witty cross-cultural wordplay. The Coxford Singlish Dictionary is the first attempt to archive this special part of Singapore’s heritage in a celebratory way, including providing worked examples for the uninitiated. The Coxford Singlish Dictionary is the most comprehensive lexicon of Singlish in the world, and it began online at Singapore’s most popular satirical humor website, TalkingCock.com.
