I am looking for a web api that is open source that will help me generate random words that are actually in the dictionary I have check out wordink but they charge for all requests over 15k an hour. I have also checked out chance.js but that library will spit out random letters.


I would check out Random Word API. It's simple and free to use. If your looking for JS code, here it is:

Example Usage with Javascript/JQuery

function RandomWord() {
    var requestStr = "http://randomword.setgetgo.com/get.php";

        type: "GET",
        url: requestStr,
        dataType: "jsonp",
        jsonpCallback: 'RandomWordComplete'

function RandomWordComplete(data) {
