Travesty - where new words appear! Kick start your creative process! Write your own non-sensical novel in the style of your favorite author! Generate reports for work in no time at all! Create a new and totally unique baby name! Before ChatGPT, before AI, back in 1984, there was Travesty. Published in Byte magazine in 1984, Travesty used an input text to generate output that had “a haunting plausibility”. Now available in IOS, this new Travesty analyzes an input text for letter frequencies and sequences, and uses that analysis to form new words that match the original's sequences. It uses a user-selectable "level" to ensure that a certain number of adjacent letters present in the input will be generated in the output. When set to a high level, the new text has a number of gibberish words; at a low level, the same words from the input text appear almost untouched. Choose one of Travesty’s canned texts, or copy/paste your own text, and Travesty instantly creates its version which may contain a previously unknown word or a new thought. This program is dedicated to the original Travesty authors, Hugh Kenner and Joseph O'Rourke.
