    In today’s world, we all speak branches of
    Indo-European languages, with the exception,
    of Kurdish, and Albanian, they hav’nt yet been classified
    in origins. Subject is wide-ranged research demanding,
    whenever we come to learn any other language than
    mother-tongue, we do face the following problems :
    – Grammatical structure to construct communication,
    – unavoidable ‘strange’ accent
    – imperfection in Pronunciation
    – Oratorical eloquency capacity

    one can not but tolerate and accept an ‘accent’ as our
    faculties need a solid background to develop in the above
    mentionned areas, what we ca not change is the fact
    how a German speaks French,
    a Frenchman speaks English,
    an Englishman speaks German
    a Punjabi speaks Urdu
    an Urduphone speaks punjabi
    An Indian speaks English
    an Arab speaking any other language
    and so on and so forth,
    funny accent has become a part of hilarity in nearly every
    culture today, tolerance is the best attitude, atleast against
    any form of “uniformism”. Achieving perfection in other
    languages is indeed extraordinary effort from some one
    not belonging to that language.
    What is profoundly disturbing is mixing two different
    languages as a false culture and trend, distinguishing
    ‘social class’ level, it mutilates both languages.
    Inventing languages is another subject.

    @ and I agree with Amna

    Really funny stuff.

    I think most important part is at the end when you define Pinglish. I agree it is not just about speaking wrong English but about the mixing of English and Urdu idiom, words or grammar. Thank you for this.
