What is Dog Latin?  Everyone knows what Latin is.  Most know Pig Latin (or should I say Ostmay owknay Igpay Atinlay)  But Dog Latin is an unfamiliar concept to most.  The best way to describe it is Fake Latin.  The fundamental rule for Dog Latin is it has to sound like Latin and sound like what you want it to mean.  An example:

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
Who guards the guards themselves?
(famous Latin quote)

Quis custodian ipsos custodianes?
Who cleans the cleaners
(dog Latin)

For another example look one post back.

P.S in case you don't know about Pig Latin, I shall show examples of it.  I'm not going to explain it though, as that would take all the fun out of it.

Isthay isyay Igpay Atinlay.

Osay isyay isthay.

Ancay ouyay uessgay ethay ulesray ofyay Igpay Atinlay?

A parting thought:  Dyslexics of the world untie!
