In this video I analyze ChatGPT's attempts at speaking Toki Pona, the constructed language with the famously minimalist 130 word vocabulary. Does the highly contextual nature of Toki Pona completely confound the algorithm? Or does the vague nature of the words allow it to stumble onto sensible statements more often than not?
Since I'm not one for cliffhangers: it does alright with basic sentences and responds appropriately to basic questions, but as soon it has to stray outside the basics or communicate a sentence that doesn't map neatly onto English syntax, it descends into utter gibberish.
For anyone interested in Toki Pona, some of the examples in this video might be good illustrations of how the language works in practice.
