I wouldn't dream of randomly generating words, because I like my words to feel right for their meanings. OTOH, I can't explain /why/ certain words feel right and others don't... I just know when they do. Sometimes when I'm translating something and I'm short on patience or time, I'll settle for a word that doesn't feel right. A few such words get used enough that I end up becoming familiar with them and they become "standard", but the majority of words I create in this way don't survive past that first usage and subsequently get replaced. Does anyone else do things that way? K.
