I want to ask,

Why is there Chinglish and why is not there English style Chinese?

Or

Why is there Chinglish but is not there English style Chinese?

What is the correct way to say that?

0
  • Why is there Chinglish, and why is there no English-style Chinese?
  • Why is there Chinglish but no English-style Chinese?
  • Why is there Chinglish when there is no English-style Chinese?

Any of these is valid. The first is two independent questions; the other two emphasize the contrast.

Note that I used no rather than not. I am not sure why my preference is so strong. I guess I might use not to express absence (no such thing in an expected place) rather than nonexistence (no such thing anywhere).

  • Great answer!!!! – Zhang Sep 23 at 5:57
