Pangrams Section

Everybody knows one or two pangrams (sentences that use every letter of the alphabet). You've probably seen some of these before:

  • The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog.
  • Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs.
  • How quickly daft jumping zebras vex.
  • Show me more pangrams!!!

The lorem ipsum Latin dummy text is a pangram with a fascinating history. Find out all about it how it has evolved on our pangram history page.

Pangramists have long sought the perfect pangram – a 26-letter sentence containing every letter of the alphabet exactly once – with varying success. One of the best known is:

  • Mr. Jock, TV quiz PhD, bags few lynx.
  • Click here to see more perfect pangrams.

A fun Pangram game that you can play whilst travelling in the car was described in Word Ways. Read the Pangrammatic Highway article to discover more.

And don't miss the gigantic collection of pangrams that our visitors have been sending in to us over the past four years. We've devoted a whole page to the best pangrams under 50-letters:

  • The five boxing wizards jump quickly.
  • Sympathizing would fix Quaker objectives.
  • Many-wived Jack laughs at probes of sex quiz.
  • Turgid saxophones blew over Mick's jazzy quaff.
  • Playing jazz vibe chords quickly excites my wife.
  • A large fawn jumped quickly over white zinc boxes.
  • Exquisite farm wench gives body jolt to prize stinker.
  • Jack amazed a few girls by dropping the antique onyx vase!
  • There are dozens more on our Visitors' Pangrams page!
