This is for all those who just wonder WHAT THE FUCK THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT... hopefully this helps you decipher the pseudo-complex pseudo-language that is "Singlish". Now on to the serious stuff:
Singlish was "developed" by the meshing of languages in Singapore as there are so many.. the Singaporean National Service helped to create a lot of it. But it isn't a real language, no, it's just a great mixture of slangs.
ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SINGLISH
I. HOW TO PRONOUNCE WORDS
a = AHHH as in fAther
i = EE as in rEEd
e = EH as in rEIn
o = OH as in jOE
u = OO as in "whO"
rh = AH as in fAther but very short, near silent..
xi = SHE as in SHE
qi = KI as in KEY (Tamil accent rules you)
ji = JEE as in "GEE"
f = substitute for "th" as in wiTH as TH is hard to pronounce
f = substitute for "ve" as in leaVE as VE is hard to pronounce
un = substitute for "on't" as in wON'T as ON'T is hard to pronounce
There is no different way to say any of these nouns. This is how they are pronounced EVERY TIME. Only those who can go beyond the Chinese system are far and few between.
poc sounds like "POKE"
chip sounds like "CHEAP"
live sounds like "LEAVE" sounds like "LEAF"
fark sounds like "FUCK"
xiao is pronounced "SHEE - AH - OH"
wo is pronounced "WHOA"
jiuming is pronounced "JEWMING"
xiaoxin is pronounced "SHEE-AH-OH SHEE-N"
leh is pronounced "LAY"
meh is pronounced "MAY"
loh is pronounced "LOW"
II. LAH / LEH / LOR / MAH / MEH
These really have no meaning.. but just as in Chinese, it's something tacked on to the end of a sentence as a sort of punctuation. None of these really have meaning, but since that's hard to understand, I'll describe what they usually are but sometimes are not.
larh / lorh / hor / arh = declarative.. normal tone, non-joking. "dun wori la, can make it"
leh / meh = joking tone. "yarh leh ... wo shi ayUMi -.-"
mah = can be both .. but it is also the sarcastic tone. also the general greeting tone "ni hao mah"
III. CHINESE, MALAY, TEOCHEOW, ENGLISH and HOKKIEN
These languages comprise Singlish. So, a lot of phrases from any of these languages may randomly thrown in to someone's speech, only in Pinyin instead of with Chinese characters.
