Pronounced: in-grish
English language written or translated by men or women in East Asian countries. This text is usually translated by someone without the knowledge of traditional American English or with very poor translating skills. Also, the lack of spoken English is lacking so the translator isn't aware of his typos. ENGRISH is usually comprehendable and typos sure be accepted as normal text since this is part of the translation process. ENGRISH can be found in many places, some of which are User's Manuals of imported goods, signs, menus, to bizarrely worded advertisements and strange t-shirt slogans and even some billboards in in English speaking cities in Asia like Hong Kong and Tokyo.
