Pirates abound in movies, music and kids fairytales. History is evidence of the brazen actions of pirates. The call of the open seas, adventure, freedom, and rewards: they’re irresistable. Jack Sparrow, Long John Silver, Captain Cook, and Captain Hook are some of the most famous pirates – and their language has found a way into our lives and hearts.
Pirate accents are filled with “Arrrrrrr” and rolling rrrrrrr’s in speech. Adding nautical terms and slang makes for a near-authentic expression: “Arrrrrrrr. Aye, aye Cap’n”. You’ve got to add a few of those into your daily conversations and e-mails… Or, take it a step further with a limp or an eye-patch for the day.
