GLOBALIZATION IS ANGLOFICATION:

China bans English words in media (BBC, 12/21/10)

China has banned newspapers, publishers and website-owners from using foreign words - particularly English ones.

China's state press and publishing body said such words were sullying the purity of the Chinese language.

It said standardised Chinese should be the norm: the press should avoid foreign abbreviations and acronyms, as well as "Chinglish" - which is a mix of English and Chinese.


English is what metrics hoped to be.
