Young educated Chinese Singaporeans were requested to specify Singlish, or Colloquial Singapore English, and Hokkien components combined with Singlish were subjected to attitudinal evaluation. The findings invite to redefine Singlish as a mix of linguistic resources that engender a stylistic repertoire fit for the expression of e.g. local identity.
