Random word generator

Postby kanadajin » Thu 08.03.2006 9:48 pm

I've been wanting to ask this question for a while, Does any one know of a random word generator on the web? You know.. You put random words in it and one of the words you put in pops up and you have to guess/answer what the word is..

Example:
Let's say I put in 3 words すき、 きらい、 どの.. It will randomly pick one of the words and show me.. lets say it picked

すき, Now I have to guess what the word is.. are you following me? Im sorry If I can't explain it Im kinda dumfounded right now(Well, Im kinda dumbfounded all the time..)

You could use something like JFC (or any flashcard program really) and just make your own vocab list, then when you run through things to test yourself, it pretty much works just how you explained.

Edit:
There's also this one as well...

I think you mean a flash card program. I think the best in terms of effectiveness is Supermemo, but it's not very user-friendly. You can also buy various programs from our generous hosts at http://www.thejapanshop.com/home.php?cat=108.

i dont think he means a flashcard program - anyway, kanadajin, if you want a random word generator, try looking for a "random name generator" - i think there's plenty of those. unless ofcourse if you mind the words being names :P you'll have to do the guessing part yourself though

on the other hand, there's always Got Psi for more experimentation :P
You know you've been hanging around a forum too long when people start quoting you and agreeing :P

I'm fairly certain he IS looking for something like a flashcard program though. He want to be able to create a word list, and then be randomly test on said word list...exactly what a flashcard program would do...or am I just completly off base here. :|
