I've been wondering this for a while, how is the "Did you mean xxx" generated in the Search function on this foram? Because it doesn't seem random, since it's the same if you search for the same phrase twice.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Well, we know SuperJer already has a large list of words that he uses in the Headline Generator (which is fantastic by the way), so I assume he's tweaked it such that "ordinary" phrases don't really turn up. I've done a bit of work on grammars, it should be possible, I think. If you decompose the thing you are searching for into some number, jam that into your sentence-generator, you get consistent results but few (no?) collisions.
