Ah, that's the beauty of the modified Cardan grille - you can tweak it to produce just about any special case word you require, even rarities such as Al-z-he-im-er-s. :-)

Just move your grille randomly enough to convince other computer scientists that there's meaning in the output (if there's negentropy, there has to be meaning, right? [*]), and you can hoax whatever you like with it. :-)

Cheers, .....Nickel Pling..... :-)

[*] Wrong, actually.
