There are some common human patterns. In music for example it's unusual
to play  a b c d, its more common to play patterns such as  a c b d.
So instead of using a word, even a stupid human more likely would e.g.
turn syllables by a pattern. Such a pattern isn't hard to crack, but a
starting point for contemplation.
