    @paul, andre:
    It's the initial release, only English by the moment.
    But you can help improve it.
    Source code is available at

    Languages are plain txt files in the /api/wordlist folder
    as you can see there is only an english.txt file at this time.

    One very nice feature of LibreText is that you can input Caps and Lowercase, like for example:
    and you will get text like:
    "Honda Hindi Hannah Hassan Hansen Hidden Hesse Hands Heads Hanna Hanson Hasan Haines Onion Oasis Odessa Heidi Hanoi Hines Henson Oneida Henan Hossein Hansa Hades Hainan Hessen Odense Heine Hinds Hendon Hideo Heian Hannes Heise Headed Heisei Hossain Hanshin Haida Odeon Haden Hessian Haddad Hansson Haddon Hsieh Heide Hondo Hoshi Henin Haasan Hannan Hasse Handed Onassis Hoshino Hooded Oneness Hoodoo Hodson Haase Hsiao Heenan Hesiod Hannon Hosea Hanssen Hosni Hanns Onsen Hsien Hahaha Hanne Ossie Hanno Hinson Hisashi Ondine Ossian Hanan Hinde Hedda Onions Heiden Hoods Handan Hadden Henne Hanes "
    using only the U.C you provided in the capitalized words.
  • No thanks. Some of the "non-libre" alternatives work just fine for me.

    Apparently "libre" is a French word meaning "unnecessary duplication of effort."
    How entirely appropriate.

    Thanks for making your word list generator libre :-) In the next release, I hope you could improve the way the license is displayed. Today your source includes this notice,
    <!-- copyright 2012, Matthew Butterick, [email protected] -->
    <!-- You may use this code subject to the GNU General Public License -->
    The GPL has a 'How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs' and there is also a longer article on the topic.

    I suggest replacing the above copyright and license notice with, is a word list maker

    I also suggest including this on the page itself rather than in the source. If that would be too lengthy, perhaps this,
