Yes there are some amusing archaic English words still in use in Singlish.Mi Amigo wrote:On the other hand...
I do like the fact that some old English words are still in use in Singapore, despite having long since passed out of use in the old country. E.g. the cover next to the door on buses labelled 'Emergency Cock Inside' (or something like that). Years ago, all houses in the UK had 'stop cocks' in the mains water pipes, but I think they are now called 'shut-off valves' or something similar.
