I don't know much about javascript, but I would do the following:

1. Figure out what javascript data structure you are going to use to hold 
the data.
2. Figure out exactly how it should be coded.
3. Simply write your PHP script to output your javascript as in 2.

The hard part of the matter (which is not very hard) is to figure out how 
to do the javascript.  Create a static page on your local hard drive with 
hard coded javascript data structures.  When you figure out how to do it 
like that, then add the PHP to generate the page in that format.

By the way, I am going to soon need to do something similar - where the 
user gives several inputs in a row, and then the data is packed and posted 
to a php script - which outputs another batch of questions.  If you are 
running a slow connection, or the server is loaded, then having to reload the
page each time you type a word or two could get quite frustrating.  So, let 
me know what you come up with if you have the time.
