char blah[500], blah2[500];

half_chop(argument, blah, blah2);

*buf = '\0';

do {
  sprintf(buf, "%s%s", buf, number(1, 4) == 4 ? translate(blah) : blah);
  half_chop(blah2, blah, blah2);
} while (blah);

should do it.

I do stuff like this all the time in my code when I need to go word for
word through a line. It's kind of tedious though for something like this
that will be used all the time :)
