The Use of "Ever" in Singaporean English.
Ho, Mian Lian; Wong, Irene F. H.
World Englishes, v20 n1 p79-87 Mar 2001
Discusses the use of "ever" in affirmative responses to Yes/No type questions as well as in declarative sentences in discourse in colloquial Singaporean English. Examines parallels in Singaporean English use of "ever" with its equivalents in the local languages. While parallels can be seen in Mandarin Hokkein, Cantonese, and Malay, Hokkein and Malay have stronger entrenching influences. (Author/VWL)
