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.

Usage

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:

>>> from gibberish import Gibberish
>>> gib = Gibberish()
>>> gib.generate_word()
'zept'
>>> gib.generate_word(start_vowel=True)
'ientz'
>>> gib.generate_word(end_vowel=True)
'twae'
>>> gib.generate_words(3)
['sqiounn', 'nuil', 'hydrieucks']

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

Installation

To install the gibberish module and console script globally, clone this repository and run:

~$ python setup.py install

Updates

Contributions

Please help edit entry the gibberish/database/components.yaml as which of the characters is an initial consonant, final consonants, or vowels is opinionated.
