You know “Manglish.” It’s the menu entry, “Maryland Carb Cakes.”
Jazz Manglish is usually auditory: the young radio announcers who innocently do terrible damage to the names of musicians: “Barney Biggered,” “Paul White Man,” and the like.
Today I saw a notable example of Jazz Manglish in print. I won’t excoriate the writer, but he did it more than once. It was the name of the leader of the Arkestra: “SUN RAH.” I guess it was that old collegiate enthusiasm bursting forth. No other explanation.
If readers can top that one, I invite submissions.
