Avast ye readers and prepare to drop anchor for it's Talk Like a Pirate Day today!

Here are some key words to help expand your pirate vocabulary.

Pirate photo by Melinda SheltonAarrr! Pirate exclamation. Done with a growl and used to emphasize the pirate's current feelings.
Ahoy Hello
Avast Stop and pay attention
Beauty a lovely woman
Cutlass Popular sword among pirates
Lubber Land lover. Someone who doesn't want to go to sea.
Matey Friend or comrade
Ne’er-do-well A scoundrel or rascal

After ye learn how to talk like a pirate, find a tale or two to tell to your matey. Or, become an expert pirate historian. See what other plunder Central's Youth Department has before ye weigh anchor. Aarrr!
