I'm just going to give a viewpoint, okay, I'm not attacking anyone. Maybe I should put this in my disclaimer.

When I think of Chinglish, I think of the English as they speak it in Singapore, how they add "la" to the end of all their sentences, along with other characteristics. I don't think of it as meaning English as spoken by ESL Chinese people worldwide. Because there is no distinguishing trait as such. And English is not widely spoken by Chinese people unless they were raised in a Western country.

I don't think you should call your version of English "Chinglish," because the term has negative connotations...you should just call it English. I have to say, I really like some Chinese people's English on here, should I name names, and I would not call it Chinglish even though it has grammatical errors. ...As long as people can understand you, it's fine!

Chinglish, similar to Singlish, Hinglish et al, happened naturally. So take it naturally.
