Pig Latin

Submitted By Takumi Murayama (zaudragon)


This will turn any text into Pig Latin, but will disregard punctuation marks!

Example: /pl{This script is cool!}
returns: isThay criptsay is oolcay has the rules to the script, here they are:
  • Any word beginning with a vowel has "way" affixed to the end
  • Any 1 or 2 letter word is ignored
  • "Sh" "th" and similar consonant combinations are sent to the back instead of just "s" ot "t"

Changes in 1.2
I made the script so there is no beginning space.

Changes in 1.1
Now "interesting" comes out as "interestingway" instead of "nterestingway" as it was in 1.0

BTW Code used from "igpay atinlay" from

Good idea, but it does not seem to always work. e.g.: apple=appleway, go fish=go ishfay

Well, it looks like there are more then one way to do pig latin, and that one is one of the main ones.
