How to talk like a pirate
Pirate Lingo - (The Short Course)
Ahoy! - "Yo!" Avast! - "Check it out!" Aye! - "Yes." Arrr! - "That's right!" (often confused with arrrgh...) Arrrgh! - "I'm VERY miffed."
Start right away by dropping your "g's" - as in sailin' or drinkin'. Also avoid any pronunciation of "r's" so that "ever" becomes "e'er" and "never" becomes "ne'er".
Substitute "you" for "ye" and "my" for "me". For example: "I want me grog ye scurvy dog!"
If all else fails, begin every other sentence with a scowl
and a hearty "Arrrrr."
