Glossary: Hinglish


There are many different descriptions for this hybridized language. This is mine. Hinglish is simply Hindi or Hindustani written in Roman or English script. A paragraph of text written in Hinglish may be peppered with English words - especially such terms or concepts as "mobile" or "weekend" or "internet". Hindi movie titles are typically written in Hinglish - as in the example shown here.
