  • NOTE
    • Values

      1. count MUST be a 'number' (the number of words to return) (1 by default)
      2. category MUST be a 'string' (the category of words to return) (randomly selected by default)
      3. repeat MUST be a 'boolean' (to have re-occurring words) (false by default)

    • Options

      category at this time supports:

      1. Animals
      2. Colors
      3. Food
      4. Peoples
      5. Sports
    • Conditions of count

      1. Categories are further divided into types to get words with strong relation to each other. If the given count is greater than the type with the highest count, then an array with the length of 80% of size of selected category or given count is returned, except when repeat is 'true'.

      2. If the given count is greater than 80% of the size of the selected category, then only 80% of the size of that category is returned (due to re-appearing words), except when repeat is 'true'.
