Colloquial version of the English language as spoken in Malaysia and it is a portmanteau of the word Malay and English. The language shares substantial linguistic similarities with Singlish in Singapore. In real essence, Manglish and Singlish are one and the same although there are a few slang words that exist in one and not in another. For all practical purposes, Manglish and Singlish are subsets of the same group.more...
Theoretically, English as spoken in Malaysia is based on British English and called Malaysian English. British spelling is generally followed. However, the influence of American English modes of expression and slang is strong, particularly among Malaysian youth.
Since 1968, Malay, or Bahasa Melayu, has been the country's sole official language. While English is widely used, many Malay words have become part of common usage in informal English or Manglish (also means Mangled English). An example is suffixing sentences with lah, e.g. "Don't be so worried-lah", which is usually used to present a sentence as rather light-going and not so serious, the suffix has no specific meaning. Although Chinese dialects also make abundant use of the suffix lah and there is some disagreement as to which language it was originally borrowed from. There is also a strong influence from Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien, and Tamil, which are other major dialects and languages spoken in Malaysia. Manglish also uses some anachronistic British terms from the era of British colonization...
From demo, the greek word meaning "people" and, sexual, the English word meaning "anything to do with private areas of your body," the word demosexual is commonly used to refer to someone who is NOT bisexual, but likes people regardless of gender. Someone who is "demosexual" is attracted to people regardless of gender but may identify more with the homo or heterosexual lifestyle.
"I'm dating John. I'm attracted to Lisa, but not girls in general. I might be demosexual."
The state of getting and or becoming "educated" therefore giving you the chance to succeed in life.
At it's most basic level, in the US, graduating from high school, or getting a General Equivalent Diploma. (Hey, if you don't have a diploma, eventually even Micky D's won't want you anymore if more qualified applicants show up. And if you can't read, write, or do basic artithmetic, you can't do a lot of things.)
However, in the United States, most "educated" people have been to a two or four year college and have some form of degree, thus making them elgible for at least slightly better jobs.
For this reason, many adults tell their kids to stay in school and get a good education, so they can be sucessful in life.
A system run by the state that screws you over, where you learn nothing of importance and must take tons of standardized tests while enduring a dumbed-down curriculum, the main focus being to keep the children just educated enough that they can grow up, take jobs, and become cogs in the wheels of the system, in what is inevitably an "assembly line" approach. In short, the Man's way of stifiling young creativity and brainwashing the youth of the nation.
1) "The reason I know the meaning of the word 'connotation' is because I go to school and get myself an education."
2) "Kids in the US often hate the education system, and feel it stifles their individuality and creativity. However, in third world nations, many kids would love the chance to go to school, even if it's crappy and state-run, because they're stuck working all day without minimum wage."
