✖ THE HAIRCUT MEME
Hi f-list :x *cough* I haz a motive for posting this today.
I'm doing an assignment on English used in different countries for my English Language and Linguistics subject.
I wanted to choose EL in Japan but it's taken already, so I chose EL in Philippines instead.
I might need help/opinion from some of you who are in the Philippines if it's not much trouble for you :3
- examples of English words used differently from normal English context
- any difference in how words are spoken?
- anything you think is interesting abt how English is used at your place (any form-- advertisements, speech, text, etc.)
- anything else? xD
As my little way of thanks, I'll scan some old 2001-2003 magazine pages of Uehara Takuya later when I get home :X
