Every year on September the 19th, the people of the world (and especially the people of college campuses) get to talk like pirates all day. This day is known as International Talk Like A Pirate day, and it is a glorious one.

The basics of the lingo, stolen shamelessly from the Official Webpage of International Talk Like A Pirate day, are as follows:

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!" or "Get off!"

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 beer," "My team is going to win it all," "I saw that television show, it sucked!" and "That was a clever remark you or I just made." And those are just a few of the myriad possibilities of Arrr!

The latter is the most common phrase heard during the day, and you cannot go wrong in inserting it wherever there is an 'r' sound in whatever you are saying.
