A pangram, also known as a holoalphabetic sentence, is a sentence where every letter is used at least once.
The most famous is probably “the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.” My guess is that if you took a touch typing class you’ve typed this sentence at least once. If you look, every letter from a to z is in that sentence, making it a good task for practicing typing.
You also see pangrams used as font examples since they cover every letter, and that’s why we’re talking about pangrams on this blog.
I think the quick brown fox pangram is popular because it makes sense. Below are as many examples of pangrams as I’ve been able to find online, and many of them are a little silly.
And I’m intentionally using all lower case, even when characters really should be capitalized.

A perfect pangram is one that uses every letter exactly once, and there are only a handful known. But they all either use abbreviations or words that are so obscure that it’s difficult for most readers to understand.
