Word generator using a Markov chain

Project Description

Jound is a Python program which can invent new words from the analysis of a list of words.

It can analyze a text and assemble all words it contains to a file. This list of words can then be analyzed in order to generate a statistical file which records the number of occurrences of each letter after a particular combination of two letters. Finally, the statistical file can be used in order to generate words using a Markov chain.

>>> jound assemble Moby_Dick.txt
[jound] INFO: Assemble words from target: Moby_Dick.txt
[jound] INFO: Writing 7756 words to ./words.txt

>>> jound analyze words.txt
[jound] INFO: Generate statistics from target: words.txt
[jound] INFO: Writing statistics to ./stats.bin

>>> jound generate 10 -s stats.bin

This project was inspired by this excellent article: La machine à inventer des mots (in French)
