English adaptable and accepting...

Take a peek at this article about some of the new words that have found their way into the Oxford English Dictionary. We usually hear about the "bling bling"'s and other slang terms that find their way in but I have never seen an article about words that have snuck in from other cultures.
Check this article out about how many words are coming from Indian origin!! Apparently a lot.
Who knew "Shampoo" and "Bungalow" were of Indian origin?

Try this nice English sentence on for size...

You might think wearing a lehnga to a kitty party is bindaas but your yaars may think you're a filmi freshie. You have nothing to tom-tom about. Don't get your chuddies in a twist.

Watch out here comes Hinglish!
