Hinglish is an amalgamation of 'Hindi' and 'English' which has for some time been used to describe the hybrid language used by many Indians. It is a fusion of South Asian languages peppered with English loanwords. The emergence of Hinglish is often blamed on India's still largely undeveloped english education system and its lack of regulation and standardisation. However, despite being criticised for its dysfunctionality, Hinglish remains a beloved and commonly used language across India.
