A pseudo-word generator

Project Description

The gibberish module let’s you generate random, pronounceable pseudo-words. It started life as an answer on StackOverflow about password generators , but it’s also a fun way to coin words or just spark some lexical creativity.


gibberish creates pseudo-words which consist of one consonant-vowel-consonant syllable that sounds like it could be English. Sometimes it spits out real words; most of the time not:

>>> import gibberish
>>> gibberish.generate_word()
>>> gibberish.generate_word()
>>> gibberish.generate_words(3)
['yink', 'glunt', 'skim', 'jask']

It also works as a console script:

~$ gibberish 6
strit druf doct vel dosk flomp
~$ gibberish
~$ gibberish 1 -l large
~$ gibberish 2 -l medium
voskot koontan
