Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Monday, September 19, 2011, is International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to Talk Like A Pirate! 
You can practice the lingo and master the piratical brogue with Mango, the FREE online language database!

Access Mango through the library’s homepage, click on Library Databases, scroll down to Mango.

Pirate is spoken in the high seas by unknown persons......

Some Conversational Goals of the Mango Pirate course:

Call Someone Names- “You bilge rat”
Express Surprise- “Blow me down” - (not to be confused with to “Blow a man down” which means to kill a man…
Give Sailing Commands- “Haul wind smartly”

Why does it take a pirate so long to learn the alphabet?

Because they can spend years at C!
