this sounds cool


#9

Paragraphs usually contain more than one sentence.
I don’t think that there even is a ~100 word sentence out there in the world.

I assume the database of paragraphs will be like OpenTDB where anyone can contribute paragraphs?


#24

They’re being pulled from Project Gutenberg. They pull from actual books and writing, so I don’t think we can really contribute paragraphs to it.
