Random Word Generator

Stuck for a word? Need something to adequately describe your day yet doesn't already have some other meaning? Look no further than the random word generator!

How does it work? By analyising the frequency of pairs of letters in 45,402 different words it is possible to generate new words which, although don't have any meaning, are reasonably syntactically correct. Sometimes you may get a word which does already exist, but there should be plenty there that don't.

You can refresh the page for 20 new words, or, if you fancy, you can enter a couple of letters to influence how the generated words start.

Since the 5th November 2006, this site has generated 58,431,600 random words.

All words should start with (min 2 chars):

If you're really interested in how this works, then it is all to do with Markov chains which deal with the probabilities of pairs of letters appearing after other pairs of letters. Using this to generate words or sentences is sometimes known as "Dissociated Press".
