Thanks, that's a useful page.

Well, I really don't know how to go about it. Since the main purpose of this is to generate words that the players in my game will be able to pronounce and which will evoke a Native American 'feel', it just seemed to be a good start.
The process of putting together more than a few words by hand seems daunting. That's one reason why I'm interested in the "process" of generating words. It seems to be logical to program a computer to do it, or use existing software.
