I would say fully half the words in this list of 400k 'most common' english words look like they were generated by a neural network

ipv6 addresses like "fe80::aede:48ff:fe00:1210" are too hard to remember, we should transform them into words like "veneering::outbaking:noseburn:gawkhammer:silphidae"
