variable_name2 => variable2_value1;variable2_value2;variable2_value3
You can also use variables in variable definition. Example:
noun_with_adjective => %noun;%adjective %noun
An example of variable definition:

family => %adjective %family_members;%family_members

family_members => grandpa;brother;sister;mom;dad;grandma

These random sentences can be used in post titles or post content, by adding the %%random_sentence%% or %%random_sentence2%% shortcode.
