Revisiting the Beasiary


Leonard Gordon


In the May 1996 Word Way I exhibited a bestiary of symmetric graphs showing how the different letters of a word interconnect. Subsequently I realized that I could introduce instructions into my computer program so that it could do more than select words whose letters had a desired set of connective numbers (for example, ACETOVERATRONE 22234445: V,C,N form bigrams with two other letters apiece, A forms bigrams with three other letters, etc.).
