Useful phrases in Pig Latin
A collection of useful phrases in Pig Latin, a constructed language
game where words in English are altered according to a simple set of rules.
Pig Latin takes the first consonant (or consonant cluster) of an English word,
moves it to the end of the word and suffixes an ay, or if a word begins with
a vowel you just add way to the end. For example, pig becomes igpay,
banana becomes ananabay, and aadvark becomes aadvarkway. There are slightly
different versions as well.
The idea is to conceal the meaning of the words. It has nothing to
do with Latin but does sound strange and foreign, like Latin and
other languages do to English speakers.
You can see them in many other languages by clicking on the English versions.
