The code for generating the portmanteaus and rhymes can be found at the entendrepreneur-web github repository. This algorithm was presented at the NeurIPS 2018 Creativity and Design Workshop under the title "Entendrepreneur: Generating Humorous Portmanteaus using Word-Embeddings", the associated conference paper can be found here. All credit for the code and the algorithm goes to Jonathan Simon. Please direct any questions to [email protected].

I've been overwhelmed with the attention this site has received, and I've had to upgrade the servers to cope with the traffic. Unforutately that also means increased costs, and because I want to keep this site ad-free, I would greatly appreciate it if you could make a donation to help keep the site running, thank you!
