It’s International Talk Like A Pirate Day!
Here’s a great way to celebrate, Mango Languages gives you the opportunity to learn Pirate.
Instruction includes five lessons, including how to give sailing commands, greet a superior & express surprise. And also provides history and grammar notes. Grammar notes! Use the second person pronoun Ye. And learn the definition of a bilge or a gentlemen o’ fortune. (For the other 364 days a year, Mango Languages offers over 60 different courses. It’s a terrific resource we found via our library.)
Since 1995, September 19th offers a boatload of fun. This year Krispy Kreme is offering a free doughnut for those ordering in pirate, and a free dozen for those wearing pirate costume.
Even NPR is celebrating, posting this image.
Some additional pirate items if you’re celebrating,
