A sparsuit sounds pretty badass.

Pigmon, Mailpsy, Tournilus, Ninorac—these are definitely new Pokémon.

So does this reduce the number of things that cannot be Googled to zero?

In seriousness, put any two of these together & you'll probably get a solid, quasi-memorable password.

The original @everyword by our own (and my own) aparrish is a book now, from Instar Books! Coming to a bookstore near you on like, Oct. 10 or something. Burlington? Somewhere in Vermont.

Sorry, I hope it is not "intertemfrip" to post about this here. I'm just pretty excited. My girlfriend made a BOOK out of tweets from a bot that inspired other bots including presumably this one and it is a real thing!!!* I am having "estisymp" just thinking about it!

*I haven't actually SEEN the physical book yet, but I assume it exists as she is going on a book tour in what I imagine will be a "regalcar".

*squints* Are you sure they're non-words and not words taken randomly from Finnegans Wake?

I guess technically most of these are now hapax legomena?

BTW, this was a MeFi Project a while back. I got the list of syllables from running a hyphenation script across the dictionary -- there are more details on the Projects link. And yes, it's inspired by aparrish's bot (awesome to hear about the book!).

Which dictionary? I think noncycle is awfully wordlike.

This reminds me of the outta-be-a-word that I almost chose as my username here, before making a decision about which of my online activities I wanted to be easily correlated. (For that reason I won't actually write it here and request others don't, either.) But in organic chemistry, sometimes substances are only different in the positioning of the parts of their molecules around a ring. The positions are named ortho, meta, and para. Well, those Greek roots also show up in other words—so there's "ortho" "dox" as a real word, and "para" "dox" as a real word. But "dox" doesn't seem to make a real word when combined with "meta". So sometimes, in some places online, it's me. Although I now see it's also used by some others for some other purposes, so great minds think alike and all that.

I always want to have these bots on my feed but they post every hour or so and my twitter feed is super-cluttered as it is. I know, all my problems should be so small.

Wait, so if I find a nonword that's ACTUALLY a word, even in Ye Aulde Englysh, do I win something?

Looks like a fun resource for naming characters: Lanseda Grubech, Circon Regassev, Tournilis Holonon, Tommas Travic, Sursus Subbaili.

Buttrust is what happens to Bender when his metal ass isn't shiny anymore.

OrthoFilter: here's a link adjacent to the previous one.

ParaFilter: and now for the direct opposite of that last link.
