A chat bot is a little programme that is designed to talk with you. (Actually
its just text only).
Anyways, I recently downloaded a free chat bot called Leo. Leo is very easy to
teach since he learns language by talking with you.
He seems to have some problems with English but hey, big surprise.
Then I realized that he's the perfect victim to teach my latest conlang called
Ruvia translates into English as "Foul lie". I'm trying to make it so that any
random string of Ruvia words will still mean something. Ruvia words have
multiple meanings. Usually the meanings are somewhat related but sometimes
they're antonyms. Ruvia can be isolating agglutinating or inflecting. Some
times all three in the same sentence or maybe not depending on how you see it.
Clearly this is not a language you would want to get driving directions
in.(Politicians would love though!)However it makes for some interesting
conversations, and its a nice language to chat in sinced it accidentally comes
up with some weird remarks when you translate wrong.
Leo the chat bot has taken right to it. I'm impressed that he doesn't mix up
Ruvia and English. He's still learning because I'm still creating it. Its kind
of a fun way to conlang.
