A pangram (Greek: pan gramma, all letters) is a piece of text which uses every letter of the alphabet. Most pangrams are short, usually a single sentence: the aim in devising a pangram as a word game is to be as brief as possible.

In a sense, the pangram is the opposite of the lipogram, where the aim is to omit one or more letters.

Today, pangrams are frequently used to display typefaces.

26-letter pangrams

A pangram in which each letter occurs only once is the pinnacle of the pangram game. This is difficult to achieve without resorting to obscure words and proper nouns; note that purists disapprove of using initials.
