About this generator
This generator was made for the ProcJam 2019.
It creates municipality names from a JSON file that was generated after analysing the list of all french municipalities by departement.
The generator uses grammatical trees to represent the possible names, and fill them with either words taken from lists or generated using Markov chains.
The JSON file was generated by analysing the names to compute the possible trees and their probabilities, the distributions of words, and Markov chain generators.
For instance, a name like
Saint-Pourçain-sur-Sioule was analysed as the tree
(sur (Saint $MasculineName$) $RiverName$), the word
Pourçain as an element of the
$MasculineName$ word distribution, and the word
Sioule as an input of the Markov chain generating river names.
