China bans English words in media

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.
