Random Word Generator

This Demonstration generates random five-letter words in English based on the probability of letter occurrence by letter position. The number of randomly generated words can be manipulated. If a letter repeats, it is deleted, which accounts for some words of shorter length. Those words that exist in the available dictionary are highlighted in red and are tallied below the text.
