Pronounced: AL-juhd, adj

Notes: Another in a long list of words I don’t know

Yesterday’s word

The word pangram is “a sentence that uses all of the letters of the alphabet”

First usage

Our word came into English in the mid-1800s

Background / Comments

Probably the most famous pangram (at least for those that took typing class) is “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.” Another one I rather like (but I had to look it up) is “My girl wove six dozen plaid jackets before she quit.” Our word comes from two Greek words: pan- (all) combined with -gram (something written).
