Friday Facts- November 30, 2012- Pangram

Do you know what a pangram is? “The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog” is one.

Yep. It’s a sentence using every letter of an alphabet at least once. They are normally used to test equipment, or develop writing or keyboarding skills. We all know the above sentence but did you know there was a name for it?

For some fun longer pangrams check out this site.

  1. Great new vocabulary word. Thanks for sharing. I’ve learned something today wonder if the boss will let me go home LOL

    • Nope. You learned it yesterday and you’ve already been home. Hehehehe

  2. Nope didn’t know there was a name for it. To much to learn and know and not enough recall to remember it when I need it.

  3. I did, but forgot it.The only one of these I can ever come right up with is palindrome,(the same forward and backward: ‘racecar’.

    • I have posted about those before, Tonettte they are fun

  4. I had never heard the term pangram, although I knew that sentence. :)
