RE: Ahoy, Maties

So, maties, how does we define our patois? Be it lingo, argot, or cant? Do our vernacular peculiarities require a definition beyond slang? Being pirates, from whom did we purloin the lingua franca of the high sea privateers? Beneath the Jolly Roger, do our common language be universal, even today? I has no answers, but a chestful of questions.
