    Ahahaha. Maybe you should submit this as a question to Putin...
    Владимир Владимирович, когда вы поцеловали этот мальчик, вы не ли, думали "Превед мой красавчег -- ты не знаешь как сказать "Arggghhh, Matey!" по-русски?"
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    The pirate talk you refer to is based on to Robert Newton's portrayal of Long John Silver in Disney's 1950 film adaptation of Treasure Island.

    The stereotypical pirate accent is actually a South Western English accent (Cornwall, Devon, maybe Bristol), and therefore can't be conveyed in Russian.

    The accent and local slang of the dialect is combined with traditional shipping terms and expressions.

    The same accent, usually called "West Country" is the stereotypical farmer accent in popular culture in Britain.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_E ... ry_accents

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Country_dialects.

    The closest you could come in Russian would be a regional, rural accent, perhaps even something like Surzhyk (Russian-Ukrainian mix).

    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    There weren't any pirates in Russia. (If they were their numbers had been so little that they hardly worth mentioning).
    Russia is a continental country so we had more
    highway robbers than pirates.

    I'd recommend to watch "Россия молодая". Ильи Гурина. It's about times of Peter the Great. They've made an attempt to bring some insight of how the Russian language was spoken 300 years ago.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Don't you mean "When foreign pirate films are shown in Russia" e.g. Pirates of the Carribean.

    As I said, you use some rural common dialect.

    This is a silly topic. If you actually think about it you can apply it to any way of speaking.

    Like how would Russians portray the difference between an upper class American and a Hillbilly.

    And also, I told you the question would sound dumb.

    Congratulations on creating a new contraction: abour. About + our = abour.

    You're probably the only russian pirate

    А потом у классика:
    "В Африке - разбойник, в Африке - злодей, в Африке ужасный Бармалей"

    You're supposed to be in Africa, besides you're referred to as brigand and villain. (not a pirate though)

    But there are sharks and gorillas and evil crocodiles in Africa! I'd much rather conduct my villainry from the Alps or some other place that's comfortable and safe...

    That's in the poem, in the story it's mentioned that Barmaley is a pirate. But, yes, he's not Russian anyway.
