The Chomskybot

Published 09 Aug 2009. Tags: computer-science, language.

The Chomskybot generates random text in the style of linguist Noam Chomsky. I think I’ll be using this instead of lorem ipsum from now on.

Note that the speaker-hearer’s linguistic intuition is unspecified with respect to the strong generative capacity of the theory. Analogously, the notion of level of grammaticalness suffices to account for the requirement that branching is not tolerated within the dominance scope of a complex symbol. Let us continue to suppose that relational information raises serious doubts about the system of base rules exclusive of the lexicon. Summarizing, then, we assume that an important property of these three types of EC is not to be considered in determining irrelevant intervening contexts in selectional rules. It must be emphasized, once again, that this analysis of a formative as a pair of sets of features is to be regarded as a parasitic gap construction.

It’s got a Wikipedia entry.
