What is a Pangram ?

If you are familiar with the English language then you might have heard the phrase “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog“. This type of sentence is known as a pangram because the sentence uses every letter in the English language.

There are other pangrams in the English language but in this case it might be more appropriate to say “The quick brown fox jumps and leaps over the freezing, snowy ground” which also uses every letter in the English language.

The phrase “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” is at least 130 years old with the first appearances in print during the 1880s. The phrase was often used by teachers to help children learn the letters of the alphabet.
