Avast, me hearties! Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. It's time to break out yer eye patches and shoulder parrots and start talkin' like pirates.
For the quick version of how to talk like one of these pillaging sailors, say "Arrrr" and "matey" a lot, as well as replacing yer words "you" with "ye," "my" with "me," and "your" with "yer." And of course, don't forget yer British accent and make sure ye slur all yer words together. Using a slew of creative threats will make it even better. If ye need a model to help ye out, Captain Barbossa and the other pirates aboard the Black Pearl are phenomenal at this speech, so be sure to take a few hints from the crew.
To help ye get some inspiration, here is a list of me favorite conversations and quotes in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl that best encapsulate the pirate vernacular. Arrr!
