Engrish… or do the children really drink beer? O_o

What is Engrish?

Well, let”s look at Wikipedia:

“Engrish (イングリッシュ Ingurisshu?) is a slang term for the misuse of the English language by native speakers of some East Asian languages. The term itself relates to Japanese speakers’ tendency to inadvertently substitute the English phonemes “R” and “L” for one another, because the Japanese language has one alveolar consonant in place for both. The related term “wasei-eigo” refers to pseudo-anglicisms that have entered into everyday Japanese. While the term may refer to spoken English, it is more often used to describe written English. Engrish can be found in many places, including signs, menus, and advertisements. Terms such as Japanglish, Japlish or Janglish for Japan, Konglish for Korea, and Chinglish for China are more specific terms for Engrish.”

Here’s an example that truly made me laugh!

I love beer (Engrish)

Let’s hope they don’t really serve their children alcoholic beverages.
