this is also known as code switching....the obvious example is this.....you speak differently to different people...you swicth to manglish when u speak to your frens (who speak manglish), then when u meet your boss, you switch again to standard english...with foreigners, you speak with their accent..when u speak to a child, you use very simple english....just like following one to sing a song....

however, not many people can do this...code switching....if u can do it perfectly, then you are good...

Ahh... so that's what its called!! I do this a lot blink.gif Not that I want to but its just seems to happen.. not just if I speak to Malaysians, Japanese, HK'ers... but also regional people within England.. yucks I hate speaking with a Scouser or Manc accent ph34r.gif

fake accents are dry.gif though..remember one time a woman came into Digicrox's shop and she had the most fake american accent.. puke.gif

I have this classmate who is, obviously chinese ed, but speaks with a cheese knows what accent. Everytime she open her mouth i just wanna laugh. She "a-fy" everything. Like "actually", she would say "ARK-tually", then "have to" she would say "HARF-to".

ROFL.
