Who's the Web VP?
The Web Vocabulary Profiler (or Web VP) has been crucial for generating these poem/texts. Actually, it's one of the neatest word manipulation tools I've found on the web. Part of the Compleat Lexical Tutor, the Web VP "will...tell you how many word types [a] text contains from the following four frequency levels: (1) the list of the most frequent 1000 word families, (2) the list of the second 1000 word families, (3) the Academic Word List, and (4) the words that do not appear in any of the preceding lists." So, for example, I took this random text from the Lexicon-Oracle, "without sinking into the dead-end street of rien ne va plus/a new phase of reflection begins/facing one another/motivic figures as well/the original abstraction is transformed/a good opportunity to provoke discussions/in the form of fixed notation which is just at the point/not to lament this condition/addressing one aspect of composing" and ran it through the Web VP. Here's the results.
From the list of the most frequent 1000 word families: a a addressing another as at begins condition dead end facing figures fixed form good in into is is just new not of of of of one one opportunity point street the the the the this to to well which without;
From the list of the second 1000 word families: composing discussions original reflection sinking;
From the Academic Word List (AWL): abstraction aspect phase plus transformed;
And from the words that do not appear in any of the preceding lists, or the OFF LIST: lament motivic ne notation provoke rien va;
The Web VP will also give you words from the Second 500 (new): street opportunity fixed addressing.
I have found that for the purpose of generating these poem/texts, words from the Second 1000, the AWL, the OFF LIST, and the Second 500 have the most potentional. In a future post I'll tell you how I use words from these lists to create a word hoard for A Matrix of Graduated Relationships.

Why the Lexicon Oracle?
I wanted a source of random texts to build my poems on. I checked out a number of online text generators, and I found the output of Karlheinz Essl’s Lexicon-Oracle to be the most promising of them all. I like the words each oracle contains as well as the potential for meaning in each message.

I could have just as easily built a series of poem/texts around, say, something from the Mission Statement Generator at dilbert.com (The customer can count on us to conveniently revolutionize resource-leveling deliverables to exceed customer expectations), but since I’ve long been interested in computer generated music--check out Essl's Lexicon-Sonate--both the subject matter and the text of the Lexicon-Oracle seemed perfect for me.

The Lexicon-Oracle for the next series of poems is:

What's with this blog?
I’ve created this blog to publish my experiments in generating poetic texts using online resources. My goal was to create poems using only material found on the web and manipulated with online programs. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve come up with a technique of finding, multiplying, refining, and arranging words into poem/texts that I hope yield some meaning for the reader in much the same way a piece of music can produce an emotion in the listener.

Of course in order to yield that meaning, these poem/texts need a reader, hence this blog. I plan to explain more about my method in future posts. I also plan to provide links to all the web resources I use to generate these texts. Please feel free to share your thoughts by dropping me a line at phillipbruce@msn.com.
