Thanks for your hard work on this, just got back to it over the weekend
which is my crypto work week!

1. I was able to make in the pseudoword_testdata directory
2. I was able to from the highest level directory run genTestData.py (I
needed to chmod ./englishpoems_testdata/basic-english.pl to be executable

I got some neat output. Here is a sample of what we have to look forward to:
crypto-usability-study corbett$ python genTestData.py
effect - time - division - cup - blow - copper - over - small - yesterday -
turn - clean - fertile - shirt
effect - time - office - cup - blow - ready - over - small - yesterday -
turn - order - country - different

his strong pipe destroys the foot solidly
his stitch leaves secretly in his paint

his card moves to her violent cheese
his present pipe destroys the foot smoothly
our stitch studies kindly by his paint
