    Re: Guide to Pirate Language

    Thank you for this, I'm currently practicing some pirate language myself (very rusty I must add).

    Although I've also found some more words myself:

    Black spot - marking someone for death

    By the Powers! - exclamation

    Furner - your own ship, not one you've stole

    Gentlemen o' fortune - a positive term for pirates

    Go on the account - embark on a piratical cruise

    Jack - a flag or a sailor

    Lilli-livered - faint of heart

    Port - left

    Sprogs - raw, untrained recruits

    Squadron - a group of ten or less warships

    Squiffy - a buffoon

    Starboard - right

    Swaggy - a ship you intend to loot

    Swashbuckling - fighting and carousing on sea

    Sweet Trade - Pirate career

    Thar - opposite of there
