List of Pangrams - English Phonetic Pangrams

English Phonetic Pangrams

Pangrams which use all the phonemes, or phones, of English (rather than alphabetic characters):

  • "With tenure, Suzie'd have all the more leisure for yachting, but her publications are no good." (for certain US accents and phonological analyses)
  • "Shh, those twelve beige hooks are joined if I patch a young, gooey mouth." (perfect for certain accents with the cot-caught merger)
  • "Are those shy Eurasian footwear, cowboy chaps, or jolly earthmoving headgear?" (perfect for certain Received Pronunciation accents)
  • "The beige hue on the waters of the loch impressed all, including the French queen, before she heard that symphony again, just as young Arthur wanted." (a phonetic, not merely phonemic, pangram. It contains both nasals and (as in 'symphony'), the fricatives (as in 'loch') and (as in 'hue'), the 'dark L' (as in 'all'), and the unvoiced labio-velar approximant (as in 'queen') - in other words, it contains different allophones.)

Famous quotes containing the words english and/or phonetic:

    The English language may hold a more disagreeable combination of words than “The doctor will see you now.” I am willing to concede something to the phrase “Have you anything to say before the current is turned on?”
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    The syntactic component of a grammar must specify, for each sentence, a deep structure that determines its semantic interpretation and a surface structure that determines its phonetic interpretation.
    Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)
