Markov chain input?



  • So I wrote another markov chain program. It works like every other markov chain program. You feed it a many-line text file with sentences or paragraphs on each line. It spits out random gibberish vaguely resembling the original corpus. Now I just need to find a corpus.

    Currently, I have these two. I considered trying Google's ngrams corpus, but it turns out I don't have enough hard drive space to hold the compressed files, let alone memory to hold the graph my program generates.

    I'm tempted to use these forums as a corpus, but I don't have the data from last time, and it was basically just the page stripped of html, which made our quoting habit look really weird.

    Any ideas?

    You could do another grab of the forums, but with adjustments to compensate for quoting.  I mean just strip the quote during the html strip.

    A program that takes disperate piece of information and finally pieces them together into a insanity-inducing whole that cannot truly be comprehended by Man?

  • COCA or BNC? They're intended to be corpora for serious research, but that doesn't mean that they can't be put to silly purposes.
