I understand.  They were quite entertaining but some others are more amusing on there.

Back to the language at least for GAoP and the English (since they along with Welsh and Scottish by far top the list of pirates from the time frame), just read up on such as the Verneys' letters, Defoe and Johnson's history... you'll easily get a taste for it from them.  Can't say I've come across an arrrrgh yet amongst them... so much for Hollyweird....

That is very true, Sterling.  In all of my readings and such I have not come across the imfamous "arrrrrsh".   Most pirates of the Carribean were from the British Isles with a splash of French, Spainish, and Dutch so they would have they dialect from their country.

But you are right as to say that Verney's letters and Dafoe and Johnson histories are better equipped to answer the question.  Some other items are the "General History of the Pyrates," Woodes Rogers, Exquemelin, and William Dampier. I also feel safe with  Marryat, as he, like Dafoe, was an experienced seaman writing for contemporaries.

Aye but if 'tis Federick Marryat, he and his contemporaries did not hail from the time of the GAoP.  So unfortunately regarding speech of the times, he would be perhaps ... suspect.

Aye, tis true. I have also read books on 'Queen Anne's War' you will not only know the language and dialect of the time plus it also talks about The Treaty of Utrecht and what made some of them become pirates like Blackbeard.. 

But if you read any works by Dampier, Sieur Raveneau de Lussan, Lionel Wafer and I know of more but I can't think of them right now.  You will also understand more about the time.
