The Pyrates Way, mates
« on: March 19, 2007, 01:27:15 AM »
Am I the only pyrate here?

eeegads mates, the Royal Navy must have cut out many tongues (and/or salty digits).  Well let me be the first to say Arrrgh (not Savvy, which is an aboriginal american term).


I publish The Pyrates Way magazine (www.pyratesway.com) and would invite ye all to check out said publication as I am in hopes to further include the pyratical side of re-enactment into our subject matter!

Hello Gentleman?or should I say, Pyrates?!

It is always nice to see a gathering about.  I am a crew member of the reenacting/living history group called The Archangel. We portray pyrates/privateers during the GAoP.   

Are any of you affiliated with other living history groups out there? 

Most of our members are based here in the Midwest, but we do have members all over the United States.

Nay, ye 're not the only pyrate.  But are they truly sure that a pirate of old said "Arrrrgh"?

You are right to question the manner and speech of pyrates, Raeven.  This is just one of the stereotypes are crew is trying debunk.

Of course, this would all depend on if you what to be a Real Pyrate or a Reel Pyrate (Hollywood) - Great topic of discussion. 

This that being said,  September 19, 2007 is "Talk like a Pyrate Day".

That whole "arrrrgh" thing has always gotten to me. 

I definitely agree with the Reel Pyrate aspect but I do think for the most part except for 'Savvy" and a few other words, the accents in POTC were closer than anyone else has gotten.  The majority of pyrates were either British Isles, Spainish and then the few spatterings from other coutries.  So some would have a 'cockney' accent,( i.e. 'ello). 

Now others if they were Privateers or Cosairs; they would be more educated, and would have spoken proper English or French.

"Talk like a Pyrate Day" if you live in the right part of the country, they are having a lot of parties that day.  I am in J-ville so the closet to me in Fort Lauderdale.  And with the 19th being in the middle of the week, I don't see it happening.   ;D

Granted, when we think of Pyrates..we always think of the English -  ;D  But there were the Spanish, of course, but let us not forget the French and the Dutch, too (GAoP time period).

Areas such as Cornwell, Dorset, Devonshire, Somerset, and Wales (the English West Country) were great harbors of the fishing and wool trade (thus the ?West Country? accent).

Very true.  I think when we hear pyrates, we only think of British or the Carribean and what not. 

But there were French pyrates and Jean Lafitte (sp?) was one.  And they definitely do not think of the Far East having pyrates when they did as well and even into the 19th century when the GAoP had long ended in the West.

Or here.

:D  :D   Now I am not sure but I doubt that YouTube is the authentic piece of research that we wish to send out for newbies in any reenacting era to use.    :D   :D
