| Hinglees (Indian English)
An article in Spectator on Indian
English has entertained many, and offended some. It deals with the particular brand of English spoken by the city-bred in India (Example: "I will intimate you" to mean, "I will notify you").
The following are my pet Hinglish axioms
- Self-suicide (suicide)
- Cousin-brother (male cousin)
- Compound-wall (that wall around the house)
- Pre-pone (opposite of postpone)
- Co-brother (brother-in-law)
