Talk like a Pirate day

pirateBig Brother set the housemates the Task of building a ship, avast! as it's Pirate week for the housemates Although their play so far has a distinctive South African flair with Xhosa Queens and smatterings of vernacular, there's more rum than remorse.

Fact: Did you know that it is International Talk Like a Pirate Day every year on the 19th of September? This means that people around t' world be encouraged t' speak 'Pirate'. Never has so much clean fun been had, so Big Brother Mzansi is going to give you some tips to brush up on your 'Pirate'.

Would-be buccaneers who'd be tryin' t' natter like a corsair had best learn t' speak th' lingo. Don't be bein' a fake pirate: learn how t' be authentic n' animated, like a real swashbucklin' scallywag o' th' sea!

Growl and scowl. Pirates aren't cultured or elegant; they growl, mutter, and scowl.

Use Pirate lingo. Sounding like a Pirate ain't hard t' do. Thar be lots o' fancy tools for picking up pirate inflection, includin' apps and online Pirate dictionaries.

Be convincing with your delivery Assume a swashbucklin' attitude when ye speak. There be nothin' as unconvincin' as a shy and retiring Pirate.

Gesture, gesture, gesture If ye need t' be drivin' the point home, gesticulate! Don't forget that buccaneers do most of their natterin' on th' deck o' a ship—out on t' ocean, where wind, waves, n' bird calls, it be tough t'hearing.

Slur your words together Pirates be at t' rum all day on t' decks, they're steamin' splice t' mainbrace (drunk as skunks) most o' t' time.

Never ever use "you" or "you're" Instead, use the piratical form, "yer", "ye" or "ya" for all forms of address to others. "Here's yer dinner, ya mangey cockroach."
