That's right! From the insane mind of Qphoria, comes his latest creation abomination... it's PIG LATIN!
(say wha?!)

What is Pig Latin?
==================
Pig Latin is a silly alteration of the English language, usually used by children as a game. To form the Pig Latin form of an English word,  the initial consonant sound is transposed to the end of the word and an ay is affixed (Ex.: "banana" would yield anana-bay). The purpose of the alteration is to both obfuscate the encoding and to indicate for the intended recipient the encoding as 'Pig Latin'. The reference to Latin is a deliberate misnomer, as it is simply a form of jargon, used only for its English connotations as a 'strange and foreign-sounding language'. The origins of Pig Latin are unknown.

The usual rules are:

   1. For words that begin with consonant sounds, move all the consonant sounds to the end of the word and add "ay."
   Doctor = Octor-day
   Happy  = Appy-hay
   
   2. For words that begin with vowel sounds, simply add "ay" or "way" to the end of the word.
   Apple  = Apple-ay (or Apple-way)
   Oxygen = Oxygen-ay (or Oxygen-way)


Why did I make this language?
=============================
Well I know its not a real language, but I wanted to make another language to test with and possibly have a fun April Fools joke for people. So use it for fun if you like.

I actually started out working on an ebonics (or ghetto as I referred to it) but that really got hard because a lot of the online translators did a lousy job.. and www.gizoogle.com lately hasn't been working for a long time

So then I just decided to do this one first because I needed a second language to test with.
