A form of English characterized by bad translation from Japanese by someone who is decent at translating vocabulary but has a poor grasp of English grammar. Tends to be a word-by-word literal translation with humorous results for native English speakers. Engrish is most common in old video games and anime subtitles.

The term "Engrish" comes from the fact that the Japanese language does not have distinct L and R sounds. They do have a consonant that is roughly somewhere in between these two sounds, but whether this translates to L or R in English depends on the situation (and therefore can be interpreted wrong.)
All your base are belong to us. (Your bases are all under our control.)

A winner is you. (You win.)

Somebody set up us the bomb. (Someone has placed a bomb on our ship!)*

Make your time. (I have no idea what this means.)

*PS: The original form of this is "set up us," not "set us up" as most people say it. If you're going to make fun of the bad translation, try to get all the mistakes.

apparently this has become a place to diss the japanese which, speaking as an english-japanese, is quite funny actually as obviously some of you are incredibly ignorant and have probably never been to japan in your life. It is an awesome country which has an amazing unique culture like every other country in the world...and yes, that includes China and Korea. It has very beautiful temples, yummy food, quirky gadgets that make you re-think the japaneses' sanity and some very cool people...some japanese people are reserved, but sometimes, once you get them to open their shell they can be as fun and crazy as yourself. However most are not overly affectionate and seem to think it’s necessary to say ‘please’ and thank you’ as many times as possible. Some adore manga and anime, drinking sake, karaoke bars etc. The Japanese are proud of their country, but haven’t they a right to be? I think many work way too hard, but I guess it hasn't really harmed them as they have made Japan one wicked place to go and visit. In all, it’s difficult to quite sum up a Japanese person without mentioning their culture...it seems to go hand in hand.
japanese ads are the worst ever, but bless them, they do try!

Accent is a combination of three main components: intonation (speech music), liaisons (word
connections), and pronunciation (the spoken sounds of vowels, consonants, and combinations).
Accents are influenced by a people’s geographical region of origin, their age, social background and education, and whether they have moved away from their home area. Nowadays it may also be influenced by external factors such radio or television. Amongst speakers of English as an additional language accent is often influenced by the pronunciation and intonation patterns of the first language.
Contrary to popular belief, grammar and accent are completely different, unrelated terms. Part of the difference is that grammar and vocabulary are systematic and structured— the letter of the language. Accent, on the other hand, is free form, intuitive, and creative— more the spirit of the language.
My accent, being from south-west, has to be different from someone far off, say north-east. Here's a story:

An Outsider in a small Texas town around Christmas time, saw a "Nativity Scene" that showed great skill and talent had gone into creating it. But one small feature was all wrong: the three wise men were wearing firemen's helmets.

Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, he left. At a "Quik Stop" on the edge of town, he asked the lady behind the counter about the helmets.

She exploded into a rage, yelling, "You darn Yankees never read your Bibles!"

The Outsider assured her that he did, but simply couldn't recall anything about firemen in the Bible.

She jerked her Bible from behind the counter and riffled through some pages, and finally jabbed her finger at a passage. Sticking it in the guys face she said, "See, it says right here, 'The three wise men came from afar.'"
