Igpay Atinlay (Pig Latin)
InstructionsLetter Pig
Enter your text in the English area. Hyphenated words are treated as two words. Words may consist of alphabetic characters only (A-Z and a-z). All punctuation, numerals, symbols and whitespace are not modified. The most common Pig Latin suffixes are "WAY" "HAY" "NAY" or "YAY" the first is used here.
Pig Latin defined A jargon systematically formed by the transposition of the initial consonant to the end of the word and the suffixation of an additional syllable, as igpay atinlay for pig Latin.
Notes Pig Latin as used here works as follows:
  • Words that begin with vowels (A, E, I, O, U) simply have "WAY" appended to the end of the word.
  • Words that begin with consonants have all consonant letters up to the first vowel (or "Y") moved to the end of the word (not just first consonant letter), and "AY" is appended.

There are other pseudo-dialects you can convert your text into, such as Back-slang, Jerigonza or Turkish Irish. A great site to translate these and more is at Spaceless.com.

Pig Latin must be widely used; even Harvard is researching it. Take their survey! Pig Latin appears to be an excellent predictor of reading success. Through Phonemic Awareness children learn that words are made up of sounds through games, songs, rhymes etc. Phonemic Awareness allows learners to playfully split words into their component sounds and reassemble them into new words which some believe is a precursor to reading.
