randtxt GoDoc

Generates random text from Markov chains of tagged source text.

An example chain is included which was derived from Plato's Ion:

$ go get github.com/pboyd/randtxt
$ go run github.com/pboyd/randtxt/cmd/gentext -chain $GOPATH/src/github.com/pboyd/randtxt/testfiles/ion/trigram.mkv

Have you already forgotten what you were saying? A rhapsode ought to interpret the mind of the poet. For the rhapsode ought to interpret the mind of the poet. For the poet is a light and winged and holy thing, and there is Phanosthenes of Andros, and Heraclides of Clazomenae, whom they have also appointed to the command of their armies and to other offices, although aliens, after they had shown their merit. And will they not choose Ion the Ephesian to be their general, and honour him, if he prove himself worthy?

To build a chain, use the Stanford POS Tagger to generate tagged text, then run cmd/readtsv. For example:

go run github.com/pboyd/randtxt/cmd/readtsv -chain output.mkv $GOPATH/src/github.com/pboyd/randtxt/testfiles/ion/tagged.tsv

I wrote about the design here.
