7. Language Play and Acquisition

Pig Latin
Play Language
Take first sound or consonant cluster
Add to end of word
Add -ay
Ex: cat => atscray

None known of

In English we commonly play with Pig Latin (rules stated above). Greg was unaware of any Punjabi play languages so we devised one of our own. We decided to adapt Pig Latin to Punjabi. Take the first syllable or sound group, place it on the end of the word, and add "Jabi".

Brother- bhai => hai-b-jabi

The problems with creating your own play language is you're not sure if it will work, if it will be easy to use, and if it will be fun to use.
