28 September 2015 Find a word with regex and WordNet

Recently wanted to come up with a random keyword. Querying WordNet and a regular expression did the job.

Installed WordNet on Mac:

$ brew install wordnet

Want a word ending in "esome"?

$ wn esome -grepn -grepv -grepa -grepr | egrep -o -e "\w*esome\b" | sort | uniq
