n. Language used of, by, to, and about men.
Maybe I'm getting wiser in my old age, or maybe I'm just around men more often than I realize, but after recognizing the aforementioned language problem plaguing the genders, I've taken it upon myself to try to debunk some of it's pitfalls. One of the first things I learned in my quest to understand where it's all gone wrong is that women speak a more elegant, subliminal form of English, and men speak a less-refined, 1.0 version of the language — Menglish.
Do you ever wonder if you and your partner are actually speaking the same language? The bad news is that you're probably not. According to US-based psychologist and gender communications specialist Bruce Christopher, men and women speak different languages. Men speak "menglish" and women speak, you guessed it — "womenglish".
It seems like only yesterday that "man" was disappearing from everything from airman to chairman and now it's popping up all over the place. There are man-boobs (see Mark Latham), man-bags (men's bags), man-caves (anywhere a man dares seek privacy), menglish (ie googly and extractors), mannies ( male nannies) and even "irritable male syndrome".
