For that matter, when did pig latin and such word games first appear?
I've heard of people who could rattle off pig latin versions of English
at conversational speeds.

Perhaps mid-18th Century England? Having said that, though this following link is referred to all across the Internet, nobody seems to have validated its claim at all.

Pig Latin as a language game might be another research route to try (if you're interested):-

FWIW, I think that at least some of these word games originated in Florence in the first part of the Quattrocento... but that's another story. :-)

Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....
