comment Describing the preference of some time period's being closer to another time period that it forgoes
@Robusto He is not asking for people to proofread anything that I can see. Surely a question about how to phrase a question is not off topic.

I don't know much about Martin Luther, but I do know that it is logically impossible for him to have considered anything about individuals living in the centuries after he did. centuries before or during Luther's time perhaps.

I actually optimized a little, reading through the entire text, without the end character. Instead, space gets inserted where words end. It automatically forms varying length words, while preserving some realistic word endings. But as you say, there are drawbacks with this solution.

Okay, I do not have access to weights in my language, but it is basically just a more economic way of randomizing an array. So, with a few texts of Shakespear and George Bernard Shaw, I think I am getting somewhere. There is a risk of going into dead ends, causing wildly varying length of strings and endless loops, but it certainly looks like English. Too much so, in some cases. =) purges whoughts whated s illay paing an of i s ge blififin you hemba t honea man ds thenes alls he to he nate wayeshavion the i guit youtled a dred thing a mor he nesn her eand of woe in for intand the

I understand your basic idea, however I'm not quite sure how to implement it. With n = 3, how would you construct words longer than 4 letters? I think it is a promising idea, as it may do everything in one fell swoop, removing the need for externally applied logic.

This is a good idea. I did some quick research and wrote up a script, unfortunately, it looks more like some African language. For example: olovow iheigh akieyures ivoula ocheege adie ohor tafe wamun hailure sour. Needs more statistics, or some such. I'll continue tweaking it.

comment Acknowledges - transitive verb question
"By signing below you acknowledge that..."? "Signing below" is the truncated form of the aforementioned, and should perhaps be written in full.
