Also tried it with 223 eve online ship names (A mixture of deities from all cultures and cool english words) with not a remarcable coherence as seen on the others examples. I blame the 'mixture' part for this.

And on minerals (875 real names on the input - 400 straight from the output):

Concerning the minerals section*:
Where you can find such appropiate things as comite. Like, it should exist. Now does.
Other nice examples are agalite, cirrite, ternite, mobirita, fierqite, brudite, arongite, crartrite from the comon espectrum (Would be equivalent to pyrite, ferrite, granite). The suicidal sadinnite.
Some funny names, that would refer to even more common minerals, discovered by pioneers before science got its grasp (and thus, the name does not include -ite, as the common name was invented and used prior to official studies): gormope, scholbine, anstunise, caipate, neslaloir (discovered by french colonists), frarise, pucotote, graritiun. Ullale popped to me too. Cumite :oops: .
There appear even icy astroid mineral groups like normikice.
All the others, the vast majority, would classify as technical and scientific names, with too many letters to be effectively used. Like it happens with the real names: mezilipiriessite, gre'ephramite, pyrabanoipitite, vonclirmephetite, trocitrinebiurl, ...

*: Synthesis of the others left as exercise for the student.

Also found meditite in there... hu hu hu hu hu. I've uncovered Talvieno. He did this for nintendo :ghost: . Now an agent will proceed to terminate me and the forums D: .


I'm amused by the algorithm. "You don't say?"
The funniest part is that, if you are a little picky, the computer never lacks imagination.

That last bit makes me think...
May luck be by your side for the matters not under your responsability.

Those mineral names are completely plausible.

When I had my first contact with the internet I didn't expect it to end in me laughing about geology jokes. Thank you dorf fort and tfc.
Also looking at the "german" words: biergwaum
BIERgwaum
BIERgwaum
I'm not even surprised.

Can I have that program too? I'd love to play around with beverages and gameconsoles.

Who or what is a Biergwaum?
There is no "I" in Tea. That would be gross.

It's a Gwaum, exclusively used for Beer. Yeah sure some people tried to use it with Vodka or other hard liquors, but after that fatal accident in 1953 they got banned from private use and may now only be operated by professionals.

Back on topic ;)....

Zach Barth has an interesting article up on Gamasutra today on his made-up language for Infinifactory.

It's a fun article, with some interesting suggestions for writing in Limit Theory. But don't miss the links in and at the end of his article to other articles on writing systems -- they're fantastic.
