###Word guidelines

To try and alleviate totally nonsensical pairings, while still preserving some element of surprise and random chance, we attempt to do some rudimentary kind of rules of what can be paired with what.

Nouns should be tangible objects in the plural form (since that seems to usually sound better).

Verbs each have two tag sets- noun types they are allowed to act on, and that they are not allowed to act on. Nouns are tagged based on what makes sense. This is somewhat arbitrary.

List of tags: person, activity, edible, liquid, animal, plant, building, group

The word list is compiled via the gulp dict task. This will output a JSON file based on words.json that list all eligible words for a verb.
