    A dead language now, obviously. :D

    Kids used to use it to say things in front of people who weren't supposed to hear them, but eventually multiple generations could speak it fluently, so it didn't work anymore as a "secret language."

    "Pig Latin" in pig latin would be "igpay atinlay." The word "nix" ("ixnay") was used as "don't do/say that" ("ixnay on the anplay").

    Pig Latin is a language game of alterations played in English. To form the Pig Latin form of an English word the first consonant (or consonant cluster) is moved to the end of the word and an ay is affixed (for example, pig yields igpay and computer yields omputercay or truancy yields uancytray). The objective is to conceal the meaning of the words from others not familiar with the rules.
