Except that wordOffset looks for a string match, and we're looking for a 
number of words instead. Your actual example works.

It wasn't clear to me whether the chunks should be a random number per 
field, or a set size based on a random number, but after re-reading the 
original it looked like he wanted the same number of words per field. 
Whichever it should be, now he has two ways to do it.
