An Alternative to Coxford

June 14, 2005 at 8:15 pm 4 comments

I see many Singaporean blogs linking to the Coxford Singlish Dictionary when they wanted to provide an explanation(s) for certain local words/phrases.

This is not bad of course, except that there is another website that you can also consider checking up.

A Dictionary of Singlish and Singapore English

Incidentally, “takchek” is not found in either of them. Maybe its use is not widespread enough. 🙂
