I figured it out on my own, so if I am incorrect, then Hissy or someone else who is an "experienced pig latin speaker" can help. Take the 1st letter of a word and move it to the end, then add ay. Victor your name would be ictorvay and Ilovecats- I dunno what your real name is so I will call you onfusedcay!

(Hissy do I have it right?)

I was just being strange last night. I learned pig latin in Jr. High School- I have no idea where it first was formulated or why. One of my friends is taking a programming class and his assignment was to design a program that translates English to Pig Latin that's what got me started, was his email to me about his assignment-

The basic rules are:
  • For words that begin with consonants, move the leading consonants to the end of the word and add "ay." Thus, "ball" becomes "all-bay"; "button" becomes "utton-bay"; "star" becomes "ar-stay"; "three" becomes "ee-thray";
  • for words beginning with "qu," move the "qu" to the end of the word and add ay. Thus "question" becomes "estion-quay"; and
  • for words that begin with vowels, simply add "way" to the end of the word. Thus, "a" becomes "a-way"; "at" becomes "at-way"; "ermine" becomes "ermine-way." This rule tends to get varied a lot, with some variants using instead "h" (thus, "at" becomes "at-hay"), or some just using the bare syllable "ay" ("at" becomes "at-ay").
Well they do say that English is a complex language!
