The Indian Ethnic English 11-29

You may also add this to the message


"STRICTLY NO UNDERSTANDING WHILE THE HANGING PROCESS IS GOING ON ABOVE YOUR BALCONY."


 Is it representation, reproduction, or a satire on Indian English?

Whatever it is , it is a faithful representation of the English being spoken in India. And it is not derogatory to us Indians

Now this should not be considered as colloquial. Instead it is Indian ethnic English. 





Peter Sellers made an attempt to familiarize Indian English to the world through his movie party. He made the phrase "Long Time no see " famous.

Other Nations too have contributed their words to English. Specially when some Europeans speak English,

IT SOUNDS MORE LIKE ANGUISH THAN ENGLISH.


U.S. has contributed it own quota of unwelcome words to the English, so have the Europeans. Many countries have their own ethnic versions of English. This is true to a lesser extent about French and Spanish too.






Apart from these, there are regional vocabularies in India that vary from region to region.

In south there is a word called co-brother, or co-son-in-law, co-daughter-in- law. This is are used to define the relations between the husband of two sisters, wives of two brothers, Two-sons-in-law. Two-daughters-Law.

In Andhra Pradesh (& Telangana), A nephew is considered Son-in-law and niece is considered Daughter-in-law.

This because of the age old tradition of the marriage between children of brother and sister , which seems to be on decline.

Similarly in north word "Patiala" is very common word to describe something in large quantity, such  as peg of whisky or a glass of Lassi.

Finally I would like to conclude that there is no need for us Indians feel bad or inferior, and it is not derogatory for us Indians to speak the way we do. We consider it as a promotion of Indian Ethnic English
.
