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.
- Blue words are word fragments (or entire words)
- Green words are compound words created from two blues ones.
- Red words are garbage words that will explode.
