Between 1990 and  2010, Chinglish (the literal translation from Chinese to English) was a  common phenomenon in the public sphere. The effect of Chinglish is definitely  humorous to both foreigners and native speakers. This presentation will ask,  where does Chinglish actually emerge from and is Chinglish considered a  face-threatening act? We will present a research on the definition of  Chinglish, the reasons behind its evolution, and people's attitude towards  Chinglish by surveying current Chinese students at Bucknell University. We  will discuss the potential misunderstanding it creates and how the Chinese  government responses to it.
