A pseudo-word generator
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() 'zept' >>> gibberish.generate_word() 'prast' >>> gibberish.generate_words(3) ['yink', 'glunt', 'skim', 'jask']
It also works as a console script:
~$ gibberish 6 strit druf doct vel dosk flomp ~$ gibberish brank ~$ gibberish 1 -l large fabaduk ~$ gibberish 2 -l medium voskot koontan
