Ahoy! – “Hello!”
Avast! - Stop and give attention. It can be used in a sense of surprise, “Whoa! Get a load of that!” which today makes it more of a “Check it out” or “No way!”
Aye! – “Why yes, I agree most heartily with everything you just said or did.”
Aye aye! – “I’ll get right on that sir, as soon as my break is over.”
Arrr! – This one is often confused with arrrgh, which is of course the sound you make when you sit on a belaying pin. “Arrr!” can mean, variously, “yes,” “I agree,” “I’m happy,” “I’m enjoying this Diet Coke.”
Q: What is a pirate’s favorite kind of cookie A: Ships Ahoy!
Q: Whay are pirates so mean? A: I don’t know they just aaarrgghhh!
Q: What to pirate’s like to eat? A: Barrrrbeque!
Since International Talk Like a Pirate Day is this Thursday (Sept. 19) – I thought this might come in handy!
