Mixing of Tamil and English in informal day to day spoken and written discourse is becoming indispensable. Like the other mixed languages Singlish, Spanglish, Chinglish, Hinglish, Tanglish, a mix of Tamil and English, is slowly emerging as a new language among the urbane youth of Tamilnadu. Tanglish is in every media mans mind as well. This paper discusses the convergence of English in Tamil media discourse. The language used in the media reflects the every day language spoken by the new generation, the Tanglish speaking youngsters.
