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.

If you're not living on the edge ... you're taking up too much space!
So then I just decided to do this one first because I needed a second language to test with.
