The correct Singlish pronunciation of "Don't"
"I don'ch know how to do this sum."
From the Hokkien phrase, "mai sng-sng". A warning against hubris: do not fool with things beyond your ability. Often deliberately mispronounced "don't pray-pray".
"Ah Beng has a really bad temper. Better don'ch play-play with him."
See also: Mai Siao Siao Mai Sng Sng
"Don't be shy." For emphasis, say "Don'ch shy-shy." In Hokkien: "meng hak hee".
"Take some more, meng hak hee, don'ch shy-shy."
