There isn't right now, but that is a good idea. Maybe have it so clicking the word (any of the underlined words) populates them in the text box.

(Also, it is open source, so *if* anyone wants to implement and pull request, they are welcome. But requests also accepted.)

This is awesome!

I wish it was easier to tab between the elements, or that the keyboard focus automatically went to the text entry field. It would be fun to type a bunch of these in succession.

Also, there's a bug: if I paste ☃ (or, actually, any non-ascii characters?) into the "enter a word" field and click "complete sentence," it seems to lock up. :(

"My accordion is an astonished harmonica."

This is excellent...

The Make Another button doesn't work for me (Firefox 25, OS X), and I would like a way to quickly cycle through options for one word.
