(Quick disclaimer~ I am not in love with the concept of pirates, but it is a part of history, and the old Sea Salt vernacular could apply to many ship's captains, and adventurers, pirate or not. In light of that, and in honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day...)

Talk like a Pirate Tips from Mango Languages*:
Make sure to add extra Rs onto lots of words when speaking like a pirate. This will happen a lot at the end of words ending in a vowel, like when to turns to ter. Just remember, a pirate's favorite letter is ARRR!
Keep in mind that a pirate usually doesn't change the form of, or conjugate, the verb to be. If you want to sound like a true buccaneer, avoid using am, is or are! (The ship be founderin'!)
Pirate Cultural Note: The phrase Shiver me timbers! is thought to come from the feeling of shock from a ship running aground or being blasted by a cannon.
Pirate joke: Why does it take pirates so long to learn the alphabet? Because they can spend years at C!
