Has anyone created or tested a passphrase cracker to test combinations of words in the dictionary for short lengths of words? (n= 2, 3, 4?)
do you mean a hybrid attack? if so, yes, depending on what you want cracked.

A Hybrid Attack builds on the dictionary attack method by adding numerals and symbols to dictionary words.
Here's more information:
Basically, the hybrid attack is just a Combinator attack. One side is simply a dictionary, the other is the result of a Brute-Force attack. In other words, the full Brute-Force keyspace is either appended or prepended to each of the words from the dictionary. That's why it's called “hybrid”.
Alternatively you can use Mask attack or Rule-based attack to replace the Brute-Force side.
