Mainichi Daily News - Manglish

Postby zengargoyle » Mon 07.03.2006 4:05 pm

maybe the should have come up with a better name than "manglish". anyhow, the Mainichi Daily News has started a 'manga in english' section:
http://mdn.mainichi-msn.co.jp/entertainment/etc/manglish/index.html

'manglish' sounds a bit too much like 'mangle' to my ears:

man·gle
tr.v. man·gled, man·gling, man·gles

1. To mutilate or disfigure by battering, hacking, cutting, or tearing.
2. To ruin or spoil through ineptitude or ignorance: mangle a speech.

It's darn well named from what I've seen. ^ ^;
I pity the fool that tries to learn English from "A six feet girl - she cares about it being tall".
