Top definition. Chingrish unknown. A language, used primarily by people who are learning English, who currently speak Chinese. This language can also be mastered by a non-chinese person to communicate in part with the Chinese. Basically, Chingrish is very poor English with a heavy Chinese accent.

It's hard to describe in words, but it involves a lot of leveling, a lot of smoothing. The tongue stays closer to the center of the mouth rather than doing the pronounced, defined highs and lows that shape the L and R sounds. The vocal cords vibrate in smooth, singing tones rather than doing the little hop up and down that makes for a normal American English syllable. And after a few practice sentences, it slips effortlessly from my mouth. Zhis is yoah guide to an ancient culchah
Do you think there's such a thing as an Asian American accent? A lot of people would say they have no accent, but I think I can usually tell when someone is Asian, even if they don't have an obvious foreign accent Just wondering if anyone knows what I mean; I've searched around and found very little on this matter. It's weird, because I hear it in Asian Americans who grew up in all-white communities I can usually tell when someone is Asian.
