Independent Learning Log 1 by Ethan (20)

Date: 20th June 2016


What I did:
I wanted to read up more on Singapore's latest news and development. Hence, I found this article talking about more Singlish words being added into Oxford English Dictionary.

       This article talks about 19 more Singlish words which are being added into Oxford English Dictionary. There were discussions between locals about this and included a small peek into a day of the English editor of Oxford English Dictionary and how words are chosen.
       In summary of the discussions in the article, Singlish is a double-edged sword; it can make texts more lively ad humorous, but overuse may cause adverse effects to our daily use of language, sometimes we may not be able to differentiate between English and Singlish.
