Hello geniuses,

I have this challenge here that is staring at me for a while now. I have tried to ignore it but it still pays me visit.

I want to be able to use a VBA script to construct grammatically correct sentences.

For the start, I will be constructing just simple sentences.

S + V + O { Subject + Verb + Object }

For example:

1. The boy is coding.
2. He has a computer.
3. Mark likes apples.
4. I sleep at night.

My goal is to have three lists (since I am dealing with simple sentences for now) .

One list for the Verb.
One for the subject.
One for the object
The last for the articles (a, an, the) - which are logically selected by the script.

So the script will look at the lists and form the sentences.

I am sure it won't be very accurate from the start but with time, it could be improved upon.


I know this idea sounds very crazy but I want to challenge myself.

I need an access point (the start) so that I will later do more research and build upon it.

I will be glad if the Gurus here can guide me to get started.

Thanks in advance.
Kelly
