Facebook today is full of people posting sentences from what-would-i-say which generates new you-ish sentences from your Facebook posting history. Because people don't post that many statuses, it doesn't have too much to work with and has to use a small unigram/bigram model. I like some of the ones it gets for me, but a bigger corpus should help. [1] Feeding all of my blog posts into a simple trigram generator I wrote I get: [1] To select random words I needed to total up how many words I've written here. Apparently that would be 330k. That's kind of a lot.
