Paul Saunders says,

As you may know, International Talk like a Pirate Day is coming up on September 19. In honor of this important holiday, LoadingReadyRun has created a vintage classroom film reel to instruct the less nautically inclined among us in proper pirate speech. Video link.

Bill Newcomb says,

The movie that Paul Saunders linked to gets one thing dead wrong:
'avast' has a specific meaning, viz. to cease, stop, or stay. Thus,
the phrase "Avast, ye scurvy dogs" means something a lot more like
"Nobody move, nobody get hurt" than "What up, homes". Perhaps this
will be the year that we can avast the misuse of 'avast'.
