Before you fret thinking about how complicated this topic sounds, let me tell you, this is one of the coolest things you will read today. Several teachers have introduced us to a pangram sentence, but little did we know this is what we call it.
What is a Pangram?
A sentence that includes all the English alphabets at least once in each sentence is called a Pangram. See, simple, isn’t it? As far as a sentence has the twenty-six letters once, it qualifies as such a sentence.
Such a sentence is also called a holoalphabetic sentence. Forming such sentences is challenging, yet fun. It makes for an amazing game to play for English learners because it explores one’s personal vocabulary and creativity at once.
Remember, the shorter the sentence, the more difficult it is to include all the letters.
Now that you know what pangrams are, wouldn’t it be intriguing to go through a list of them, that could give you a deeper idea of this concept.
A list of Pangrams
- The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog: This is indeed one of the most common of such sentences. Several educators use this sentence to allow students to identify the uniqueness in it.
2. We promptly judged antique ivory buckles for the next prize: Here’s a sentence that uses not 26, but 50 alphabets. You should know, that there is no rule that you cannot repeat the letters. You can, but it should appear at least once.
3. Two driven jocks help fax my big quiz: A sentence containing 30 letters, this pangram is yet another fun one.
4. A mad boxer shot a quick, gloved jab to the jaw of his dizzy opponent
5. Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs.
6. We promptly judged antique ivory buckles for the next prize.
7. A wizard’s job is to vex chumps quickly in fog.
8. By Jove, my quick study of lexicography won a prize!
9. The job requires extra pluck and zeal from every young wage earner.
10. Pack my red box with five dozen quality jugs.
Pangram sentences are quite fun if you turn it into a party or classroom game. Give your guests/students the task of forming such sentences. To take the level up a notch, you can assign the number of alphabets to use to pass each round. Sounds like something you can do, right?
