The Name Confluxer (a random name generator)
In the course of my random wanderings, I came across the language confluxer
, a script
designed to create vocabulary for new artificial languages by mashing up
lists of words from existing ones. It was too amusing to resist; I
turned it into a CGI program, compiled a few entertaining lists, and
blam! instant toy.
How it Works
The script takes a list of words and associates every pair of letters
with the letters known to follow that pair. It then chooses a
letter-pair from the beginning of a word, adds one of the letters
associated with that pair, and keeps going until reaching a space or the
maximum word length.
