English To Pig Latin

Don't know why you would need this...


Currently, symbols are not corrected (Code wasn't working).

Nice :3

Pig Latin Is Nice To Speak In.

It is fun instead of nice, but yes :3

UPDATE: Added capitalization!

"Ellohay romfay hetay theroay iiiiiiiiidesay!" Upersay xcitedeay orfay hetay ewnay Deleaay lbumaay.


can be simplified to

"ht my ccomradecomrade"
Yep, that's an issue.

@helicoptur and @sir_kitten2, did you read the comment?

Yes but my brain forgot about it.

it should say "egolay atmanbay" (or "ego-lay atman-bay")

Yeah, it doesnt work well.

You're too fond of the SPLIT block. This is at its heart a job for recursion:

(This uses the Words and Sentences library, which you should load as the first step in solving any problem involving text!)

Now you can add frills for individual words:

Note that the first IF uses a recursive call; the only call to SIMPLE PIG LATIN is in the simple case at the end. This ensures that a word with an initial capital vowel is handled correctly.

Finally, you can handle multiple words this way:

If you don't like the handling of the ! the place to fix it is in another IF in word to pig latin, with a recursive call as in the case of initial capitals.

The red SENTENCE block is used here to convert a string of words into a list of words. (It can do other things, too.) It takes care of leading, trailing, and/or multiple spaces correctly.

P.S. Here it is.

P.P.S. You are of the "yay" sect; I am of the "way" sect. ;~)

I'm of the "ay" sect.

also, here's my code, very messy though.


So am I, in practice, because it avoids hairing up the code unnecessarily. :~)

[Dons teacher hat.] Your code is messy for two reasons:

  1. You don't instinctively create well-named helper procedures to make your code self-documenting. In my version, for example, I didn't even have to show the code for VOWEL?, CAPITALIZE, ALL BUT FIRST LETTER OF, etc., to make the inner workings of the definitions I did show apparent.

  2. You don't see this as a fundamentally recursive problem. I don't know whether that's because you're iffy on recursion in general or you've just been poisoned too long by a looping perspective on pig Latin in particular. When teaching younger kids I just show what I've here called SIMPLE PIG LATIN as the complete solution.

oh, no, I actually thought about it after I made my code. I would've used recursion if I didn't start making it a map block.

(oh wait, I forgot to convert the list to text, lol)

that may be true

this is actually my first time making a functional pig latin translator (I have an unfinished one on scratch, made before I knew about snap)

It says “lol” is “lay” but “lol” is actually “ollay”
