Choundas has written an incredible book that is absolutely imperative for those of us living on the tide winds of pyrate lore! And for those who love ANY pyrate movie, from Treasure Island to Pirates of the Caribbean, will absolutely enjoy this book. Complete with pyrantical insults!
Being college educated and removed by some 300 years from that time period...I needed a helping hand. The pirate Primer provided that helping hand. Now I can stand before my students each year on September 19th, and instruct them in the science of chemistry like a true scally-wag.
It's a very in depth book that instructs one on the proper linguistics of the pirate lingo...so don't sit there like a land lubber...hoist your mainsal and set a course 'wards bein a better lad o the sea.
This may be the first time I've read every page of a dictionary. Plus it has grammar helps, and general culture to feed any need you have to communicate, or just think, in 'pirate'!
If you want to be a pirate, this book will get you there; shy of teaching ultra-violence and general disdain for humanity. But you can get schooled in those practically anywhere. Until you've familiarized yourself with this work, you still won't communicate as a pirate. Ergo, you won't be a pirate, just an illiterate thug. But, when you can think and talk in 'pirate', then you don't need to know how to club that idiot over there. You'll have the wherewithall to just do whatever comes naturally, you will.
