# is it possible to know if a language is regular if its equivalence classes are finite?

i have a theoretical questions, and was wondering if you could help me with it so i could understand the material better.

1)suppose we have some language L over $$\Sigma$$, can we know if L is regular if all of it equivalence classes of relation $$R_L$$ is finite?

2)and what about L*? is it finite? i mean the cardinality is infinity(alef), but can it be made into a finite language?

Edit: my question is about Myhill–Nerode relation

• How is $R_L$ defined? Are you referring to the Myhill-Nerode relation? – dkaeae Dec 3 '18 at 8:39
The language $$L^*$$ is finite in two cases: if $$L = \emptyset$$ or if $$L = \{\epsilon\}$$. In any other case it is infinite.
