I don't see any Chinglish

All of your sentence translations are wonderfully grammattical.  I thought Chinglish usually involved some twisted grammar mixed with Chinese culture or idioms.  So  there seems to be no Chinglish here.

The only comment I have is that #8 needs to use the word "deceased", which means dead, not cease, which means to stop doing something (but does not apply to living).

Thanks for your overall  responses ,cordial chaps. Also I make an apology at the false one as Leungshuren picked out .

Long ago I had intention to select some sentences easily colored with chinglish and post here . In order to avoid first impression of false answers , I then just gave out the right ones . That is the reason it arose in your heads .

The thread will be continued  , I look forward to more comments on them .

More chinglish sentenses

People mountain, people sea. 人山人海。
Give you some colors to see see. 给你点颜色瞧瞧。
Hehe, these sentenses appeared in some of the English teaching newspapers. Can you believe that?  
They sounds more like jokes.
