For words that start with a, e, i, o and u, you just say the word and stick a "hay" at the end.
"But hay is for horses!" you protest.
Well, that's how you do it. Here are some examples:
If there's a double consonant at the start of a word, you stick both letters onto the "ay" part. Take these examples:
For extra credit, try some words with three consonants at the beginning:
|Okay, you're probably saying,
"This is so easy to do, how can it be a secret language?" Like I told you, Pig Latin is easy, and one word at a time is easy to understand.
Wait until you try a whole sentence ... you'll see why it's a great secret language.
Now you're an advanced Pig Latin speaker. You're ready to do Pig Latin in ... Latin! I've picked a saying that means "Seize the Day" -- live life to the fullest and enjoy every minute of it. It's about making the most of every moment and every day.
|How about Pig Latin in French?
I love French stuff and so does my poodle, Gigi Queen of the Universe.
Here's a challenging sentence in French. It means, "Gosh! I just broke my leg!"
|For my final trick, I'm going to show you how to sing The Star-Spangled Banner in Pig Latin. What a trick! What a hoot! You can listen to the whole song in Pig Latin by clicking here: e-Thay ar-Stay angled-Spay anner-Bay|
|In English:||In Pig Latin:|
|O, say can you see by the dawn's early light||O-hay ay-say an-cay ou-yay ee-say y-Bay e-thay awn's-day early-hay ight-lay|
|What so proudly we hailed as the twilight's last gleaming.||at-Whay o-say oudly-pray e-way ailed-hay as-hay e-thay ilight's-tway ast-lay eaming-glay.|
|Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight||ose-Whay oad-bray ipes-stray and-hay ight-bray ars-stay ough-thray e-thay erilous-pay ight-fay|
|O'er ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.||O'er-hay amparts-ray e-way atched-way ere-way o-say allantly-gay eaming-stray.|
|And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air||And-hay e-thay ocket's-ray ed-ray are-glay, e-thay ombs-bay ursting-bay in-hay air-hay|
|Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.||ave-Gay oof-pray ough-thray e-thay ight-nay at-thay our-hay ag-flay as-way ill-stay ere-thay.|
|O! Say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,||O-hay ay-say oes-day at-thay ar-stay angled-spay anner-bay et-yay ave-way|
|O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!||O'er-hay e-thay and-lay of-hay e-thay ee-fray and-hay e-thay ome-hay of-hay e-thay ave-bray.|
|That's Pig Latin!
Have fun with this and I hope you and your friends use it to great advantage, like we did with the Stan situation.
