    Default a sentence which contains all the alphabet letters

    What's the English word for a sentence which contains all the alphabet letters, each letter exactly once?

    Thanks,
    Gad Samuel

    A sentence that contains each letter of the alphabet only once is called a perfect pangram. A pangram is a sentence containing every letter of the alphabet. As far as I know, in English, perfect pangrams can only be made by using abbreviations and/or very obscure words.

    Not bad, Caiopea, and changing 'the' to 'a' can make for two less letters. For even one less letter than that, "Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs" can do the trick.

    Thumbs up Re: a sentence which contains all the alphabet letters

    I came up with a sentance that uses all 26 letters of the alphabet only one time and it makes sense. Maybe only to people in America that have cable TV.
    "Mr Jex fly quick zap on WGBS HD TV"

    Not sure if this would be accepted maybe in Boston MA. USA
    they would. Well there you go.

    This is a nice place to visit, I will return thanks
