Back in 2016 I started a mini-project to play with neural networks. I concluded that the approach I used didn't give me enough control over the procedural generation. I wanted to revisit the project and focus on word manipulation (the problem I wanted to solve) instead of neural networks (the tool I was learning). Over the past week I read a lot, played with some code, and learned more about English. I tried modifying the spelling of existing words. Example:

Four skore and seven yirz ago our fatherz brougt forth on this kontinent, a noo nation, konceived in Liberty, and dedikated too the propozition that all men are kreated ekual.

I wrote up the results, including an interactive demo and instructions for compiling and using the software and dataset I found. I don't know what I will do with this, but it was interesting and I hope it's useful to someone.
