What is the English translation of 'Illegitimi non carborundum'?

Don't let the b*****ds grind you down is the English equivalent of 'Illegitimi non carborundum'. In the word by word translation, the adjective/noun 'illegitimi' means 'illegitimate [ones]'. The adverb 'non' means 'not'. The noun 'carborundum' refers to a range of abrasives, such as silicon carbide. This isn't real Latin. It's one of many mock Latin phrases.

Why is pig Latin called pig Latin?

"Pig-Latin" is also known as "dog-Latin." The animal reference is dismissive, and any animal would do. It might as well be "horse-Latin" or "cow-Latin."Another view:Actually the term "dog Latin" usually refers to mock Latin, a jargon that imitates Latin words and forms; a famous example is the pseudo-Latin translation of "don't let the bastards grind you down", Illegitimi non carborundum. The name "pig Latin" originally referred to the same thing, but now means specifically the application of a simple tranformational rule to purely English words and phrases.
