Now that we have established the patterned nature of human conversation, we can leverage this knowledge to make it easier to do conversation design. You are not starting from scratch! With a library of standard patterns, pre-built components, fleshed out to meet the common ways those patterns are used in everyday conversation, your design process can be more efficient, since you do not have to rebuild these patterns each time. Your designs also end up more robust, since you are less likely to leave out key components. The library of patterns is here to make it fast and easy to include a breadth of conversational competence. You’re not starting from zero. You’re starting with the basics already there.
