The folder “software version” contains text produced using software which implements some of the features of the manual version of February 2003.

I am grateful to Dr Jonathan Knight for producing this software.

Please note that the software version is subject to the following caveats.
• Word length does not reduce from left to right of line.
• There are no systematic restrictions on which characters can co-occur.
• All lines are ten words long.
• The vocabulary is restricted – in particular, “daiin” and various other short words do not occur.
• There are no labels.
