xinglish - Xinglish refers to English with obvious mistakes -- e.g. spelling errors, incorrect grammar etc., authored or written by Chinese or in China, mainly on official signs, etc.

e.g., "Builf" instead of "built," as the Chinese writer has problems differentiating a "t" from an "f" as both have the same number of strokes, is an example of Xinglish. Expressions with word by word translations that lead to quite unexpected meanings: "Caution, drop down" instead of "Beware of falling."

xxxclamation mark - Xxxclamation point. Exclamation points, the number of which indicates how lurid the pornographic material you're considering buying or renting is. The more !'s the more x's implied. X-rated is definitely unsuitable for children. I'm not sure whether it's the case these days, but xxx-rated used to indicate explicit genital exposure and coitus or equivalent. It would hardly surprise me to learn that genital exposure for masturbation is no longer considered xxx-rated. The xxx rating may be reserved for when the sex acts involve bizarre fetishes, pedophilia, violence, and more than one person -- possibly a chick and a chickadee?

e.g., With as many xxxclamation marks as were used on the box, I thought it might be too sensational and shocking even for my jaded palate. I figured I'd end up with an adult case of crazy eye, for which there's no known cure. Treatable, but incurable.
