Talk Like a Pirate

                                                          Ahoy Matey: A Few Notes on Pirate Lingo

 1. Where did the “ahoy matey” lingo come from? 

2. Do we have any idea how pirates talked or if there was a common argot?


3. Why would a group of bandits have a special way of talking? Is there a nugget of history in it, or is it all Hollywood? (More Disney than Blackbeard?)
