In another breakthrough on the procrastination front, some absolute genius named Neil Hennessey has devised a Jabberwoky Engine. It works thus:
JABBER produces nonsense words that sound like English words, in the way that the portmanteau words from Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky sound like English words.
When a letter comes into contact with another letter or group of letters, a calculation occurs to determine whether they bond according to the likelihood that they would appear contiguously in the English lexicon. Clusters of letters accumulate to form words, which results in a dynamic nonsense word sound poem floating around on the screen with each iteration of the generator.
JABBER realises a linguistic chemistry with letters as atoms and words as molecules.
My initial output:
The “astrealla quordrin” sounds like a nice place to go, “indainic” and “draitumpt” sound like moods I’ve been in, and “fing” is obviously the future profanity derived from our ephemistic “eff-ing.” I shall start propagating it.
And now, my code-literate friends, who wants to figure out a Jabberwoky Engine screensaver for me?
