Having read an article about some rare literary terms, we thought we would share a word with you this week that we thought was quite unusual and, an example of it can be linked to our parent company, The Brown Fox Bureau.
A piece of text that uses every letter of the alphabet, except one. So an example is:
The Quick Brown Jumped over the Lazy Dog.
This pangrammatic lipogram version avoids the letter S.
The Quick Brown Jumps over the Lazy Dog, uses every letter of the alphabet.
This latter well-known phrase was the inspiration behind the name of The Brown Fox Bureau – the phrase is a tool for teaching touch typing, as it uses every key on the keyboard, due to the fact that it has all the letters in the alphabet.
Can you create a Lipogram of your own? What letter would you pick to leave out in the cold? We’d love to hear your ideas….
