Also, your 300 words consist of only 26 characters each - a brute force dictionary attack relying upon letter frequency analysis yo boot doesn't need to go through an exponent of 300 words, it just has to guess the right one of 26 characters each time, aided by the fact that certain combinations will be ;illegal' to start with (e.g. zq never crops up).
