Word Ways


Darryl Francis


The idea has often been proposed that an alphabetical anagram dictionary should be constructed. Every word in the English language is converted to its alphabetical anagram, in which its letters appear in alphabetical order. For example, BAGGYWRINKLE becomes ABEGGIKLNRWY. The alphabetical anagrams are then arranged in alphabetical order to form a dictionary. Each entry in this alphabetically arranged volume has listed under it the word or words which can be made from all of its letters.
