Talk Like a Pirate

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     Do you know what a pirate is? A pirate is a thief who sails on a boat. Pirates use boats to find other boats on the ocean. Pirates climb on the other boats and steal from them. A long time ago, they stole things like gold, gems, and spices.
 
2     There were pirates near America long ago, too. They sailed around and stole things from boats. They stole things from cities on the coast. They fought and killed people. They made lots of people afraid.
 
3     Much later, movies were made about pirates. The movies were a little silly. The movie pirates sounded funny when they talked. They used words that sounded silly. They talked in funny ways.
 
4     Aaaarrr! Ahoy, me mateys! Shiver me timbers!
 
5     Doesn't that sound funny? It doesn't make much sense to most of us. It's the way pirates talk in movies. Real pirates came from many different places. Most of them could not read or write. When they talked, they used words from many different languages. In time, there were many words that only pirates used.
 
6     A few years ago, two friends were playing a game. One of them was hit with a ball.
 
7     "Aaaargh!" he yelled.
 
8     The two friends thought it was funny. They thought he sounded like a pirate. They thought it would be fun to have a special day. On this day everyone could talk like a pirate. They created Talk Like a Pirate Day.
 
9     Talk Like a Pirate Day is on September 19. Many people celebrate it. They celebrate it by talking funny, just like movie pirates. Some people dress just like pirates. Some people even have parties. At these parties people have to talk like pirates.
