GNU Talk Filters

https://www.gnu.org/software/talkfilters/
Translates English text into dialects

The GNU Talk Filters are filter programs that convert ordinary English text into text that mimics a stereotyped or otherwise humorous dialect. These filters have been in the public domain for many years, but now for the first time they are provided as a single integrated package. The filters include austro, b1ff, brooklyn, chef, cockney, drawl, dubya, fudd, funetak, jethro, jive, kraut, pansy, pirate, postmodern, redneck, valspeak, and warez. Each program reads from standard input and writes to standard output. The package also provides the filters as a C library, so they can be easily embedded in other other programs. Each program reads from standard input and writes to standard output. It also includes a patch to integrate the talk filters with the Pidgin instant messenger program.
