yo ho yo ho, a pirate’s life for me!

by @according2kelly on September 19, 2007

at least for today, that is, because it’s national talk like a pirate day! so break out your eye patch, maybe add a little swagger to your step & incorporate a few of these words into your vocabulary. (if you are more of a visual learner, check out THIS video).

ahoy! – “hello!”
avast! – stop & give attention. it can be used in a sense of surprise, “whoa! get a load of that!” which today makes it more of a “check it out” or “no way!” or “get off!”
aye! – “why yes, i agree most with everything you just said or did.”
aye aye! – “i’ll get right on that sir, as soon as my break is over.”
arrr! – can mean, variously, “yes,” “i agree,” “i’m happy,”that was a clever remark you or I just made.” & those are just a few of the myriad possibilities of arrr!

need a little more help? maybe you want some more advanced lingo? pirate pick up lines? pirate games? whatever it is your little heart desires you can probably find it HERE.
