Time was, you'd interview a pirate spokesman and every other word would be "avast" or "arrr."
Don't think I could keep up the 'avast's and 'me hearties' during all that time, sorry.

But a sharp "avast" stopped them, and four or five cabin-boys gambolled out on it ashore.
In a few minutes the second mate came up, hallooing to us to "avast," and laughing.
