Speaking "Pig Latin" (1)


Sometimes, native English speakers, especially school children, played a kind of verbal game, or used a fake language called "Pig Latin".

It's not Latin at all.  It's English, but the words that are created sound like classical Latin.
The rules of this language are simple: you switch the first letter of the word to the end of the word and add the suffix "-ay" to it.
So,"Hello" becomes "ellohay", "Man" becomes "Anmay" and so on.

Not only single words, but phrases can also be changed to Pig Latin: "How are you ?" becomes "Owhay arehay ouyay ?"
Note that words like "are" and "is" are not changed.           (G.K)
