       So if I'm reading this idea right it's "gibberish is funny ha ha, so make a chatbot that speaks gibberish" Am I reading this idea right?

       I don't think it's quite gibberish, or not necessarily at least. I'm pretty sure linguists can predict the type of errors and mispronunciations someone will make in a second language based on vocal and grammatical habits from their first language. Classic ones are mixing up genders when coming from a language that doesn't use gendered pronouns. Or confusing the sound of L and R when coming from a language that don't distinguish the sounds.

       But of course not all mistakes are predictable, so some randomness (gibberish) should be sprinkled in. I knew a Chinese real estate agent in the US who somehow learned the word "sewage" incorrectly and would constantly refer to it as "sausage". I couldn't correct him without laughing so I just let it be.
