ABSTRACT
The article presents an overview of the distinct definitions of the words pirates, privateers, and buccaneers as they were used to describe swashbucklers in the Caribbean Sea during the 1600s and 1700s. It defines a pirate as one who commits crimes on the open sea with no allegiance to any nation, a privateer as one who is commissioned by a government during wartime to attack ships, and a buccaneer as one who focused on destroying the Spanish settlers in the Caribbean.
