- Randomizations from a Corpus
Randomizations are from user choice of either heads or full families from VP-CLassic lists (1k, 2k, or AWL). Output can relay to Multiconc Interactive and ID-Words activities. (*AWL sublists!*)
Like (a) but draws its randomizations from the full 20 BNC lists. Somewhat less developed than classic above; used in My Word Coach project; good for exploring mid-to-low frequency zones (to prep Frequency Trainer?) Plus NEW! BNC-COCA (first 10 k-levels, headwords)
Draws its randomizations from the 10 250-word family VP-Kids lists. Use for building tests (selecting random items), intuitively gauging a vocab level, or just for fun.) Soon: auto-feed output to Muticonc Graded reader corpus.
(d) randwords_French_5k (*New! Plus user-edit list*)
From Lonsdale & Le Bras' (2012) corpus informed 5k French framework (see VP Compleat). Auto-feeds to Muticonc & ID-word.
- Randomizations of User InputThe Compleat Randomizer
'Compleat' in accepting (a) numeric and text input, (b) text-as-words and text-as-sentences input, and (c) producing output in four formats. Works offline.
A nifty hack - randomization not of but from user list
To get e.g. 10 random words (or numbers) from 100 - enter the 100 into Compleat Randomizer, randomize, then select the first ten.
Related: As well as these up-front randomizers, several Lextutor routines use behind-the-scenes randomization for motivation and novelty and to prevent unwanted sequence-learning: GroupLex, Reaction Time, Dictator, Freq Train, MultiConc, and the N-word/rational Cloze.
