Aarrr! Thar be fun to be had!

Posted by E.G.D. on September 19, 2012

Ahoy, maties!  X really does mark the spot this year (at least in roman numerals) because today is the tenth annual “Talk Like a Pirate Day!”    Aaaarrrrrrrr.   If yer not bein’ on a ship this day, why not head to your nearest beach to terrorize the land lubbers and search for buried treasure (or at least seashells)?  Whatever be your plans, remember to be talkin’ like the salty dog ye’ know ye’ be!

The Pirates of Redondo Beach, California

How To Be Speakin’ Pirate-Like

Startin’ Rules from the Talk Like a Pirate Day Official UK Headquarters:

  • Double up on all your adjectives and you’ll be bountifully bombastic with your phrasing. Pirates never speak of  “a big ship”, they call it a “great, grand ship!” They never say never, they say “No nay ne’er!”
  • Drop all your “g”‘s when you speak and you’ll get words like “rowin'”, “sailin'” and “fightin'”. Dropping all of your “v”‘s will get you words like “ne’er”, “e’er” and “o’er”.
  • Instead of saying “I am”, sailors say, “I be”. Instead of saying “You are”, sailors say, “You be”. Instead of saying, “They are”, sailors say, “They be”. Ne’er speak in anythin’ but the present tense!

The Pirate Code

For all yer International Talk Like a Pirate Day needs set yer sail fer Talk Like a  Yo-ho-ho!
