Wednesday Word of the Day

Pangram \PAN-gruhm\, noun:
A sentence, verse, etc., that includes all the letters of the alphabet.

Example:  "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."

The ideal pangram contains each letter only once, but it is difficult to compose a meaningful sentence of this kind.
-- Thomas Burns McArthur, Feri McArthur, The Oxford companion to the English language

~See now I'm kind of compelled to try making up my own pangram. :) ~ 


  1. Ah...I don't think I'll be trying that. lol!

  2. LOL...I shouldn't have started! It's hard. ~wink~

    I can't imagine how to do it without repeating letters...especially vowels!

  3. Gee, ya learn something new everyday. I didn't know that was name for using every letter of the alphabet. Wow, what a brain twister. ~smiles~

  4. It was a surprise to me too, Savanna. And it's one heck of a brain twister. ;)
