Pangram

Postby LukeJavan8 » Sun Feb 14, 2010 1:20 pm

From the site that shall not be mentioned's Word for the
Day:

PANGRAM. A phrase or sentence using all the letters of the alphabet.

Usage: A pangram is a phrase that uses all of the letters in an alphabet. Pangrams may be written in any language. The shorter a pangram is, the more difficult it becomes to write, as some letters are used more often in the English language than others, particularly vowels. Since nearly every word in English uses vowels, a "perfect" pangram would contain only very few words.

The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog. You’ve seen it a thousand times, but what does it mean? Is it a clever bit of poetry, or a famous quote? No, it’s a pangram, a word that uses each letter of the English alphabet.

DOES ANY ONE KNOW OF ANY MORE ????

Pangrams have been discussed here.

"Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs" is perhaps the second most common example.

And so they have. I posted that in Feb '10.
At least you noticed it.
