Generate nonsense words in any language by corpus analysis

Project description


Momblish is a library for generating fake words in any phoenetic.

It is named after a "fake" word put into the OED on accident.

Momblish uses trigram analysis to generate (mostly) pronounacble gibberish - so
it can be used for any language that can be n-gram analyzed.


To use moblish, import it -

.. code:: python

from momblish import Momblish

m = Momblish.english()

Currently - only the english corpus is available.

Each time you load the English momblish it will perform an analysis on
`/usr/share/dict` and use that data to generate nonsense words.

To avoid this computation overhead, you can save the pre-analyzed corpus
as a file and read it in on demand.

.. code:: python

from mombmlish import Momblish
from momblish.corpus import Corpus

m = Momblish.english()'/tmp/corpus.json')

c = Corpus.load('/tmp/corpus.json')
n = Momblish(c)

To get Momblish to generate words for you call `word` on a Momblish instance.

`sentence` will make a generator you can feed to your program to make word lists
of varying length.

.. code:: python
m.word() #= > 'PONESSAL'
m.word(10) #= > 'MIDONIHYLA'
w = m.sentence() #= > <generator object Momblish.sentence at 0x10513dc78>
next(w) #= > 'TICK'
next(w) #= > 'DRIXY'
next(w) #= > 'UNREA'
m.sentence(3, word_length=5) #= > ['LEDGE', 'DEAKA', 'HONGI']
