English in Malaysia

An interesting message from a Yahoo group I joined recently was written by someone in Malysia about an emerging variety of English there that includes characteristics of British and American varieties as well as a few words from Malay, Cantonese and Tamil.

Reminds me of a post from a while back about defining World Standard English and one about differences in English ability between Malaysian and Thai people. While I’m reminiscing, how about one from my travel blog about Kuala Lumpur.
