Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is Pig Latin? (Definition)

Pig-Latin is the name given to a slang of English origin, somewhat related to French Louchébem, modifying words by moving the first letters or syllables to the end of the word and by adding a final syllable: generally -ay.

How to encrypt using Pig Latin cipher?

Pig Latin translation modifies words by applying 2 rules:

— If the word starts with a vowel (only A,E,I,O,U not Y), add a -yay at the end of the word (sometimes -hay or -way)

Example: ENCODER becomes ENCODER-YAY

— if the word begins with one or more consonants, move the consonant (s) to the end of the word, and add ay.

Example: SLANG becomes ANG-SLAY

— if the word is short (1-2 letters) it can remain intact

dCode does not apply a rule for words less than 3 letters.

How to decrypt Pig Latin cipher?

The decryption (inverse translation) of Pig Latin consists of finding the original words of the text by getting rid of the suffix -AY and possibly repositioning the consonants at the beginning of the word:

Example: IG-PAY devient PIG

How to recognize a Pig Latin ciphertext?

The message contains strange words that end in AY.

Words often begin with a consonant and those beginning with a vowel end in YAY.

Sentences in Pig Latin can sound strange and out of step with the original language (often English).

What is the difference between Pig Latin and Verlan?

Pig Latin involves moving letters to the end of words, while verlan involves reversing the order of syllables in each word.
