Word Ways


A. AnilFollow


Anacrograms, introduced in May, are anagrams of the acrostics (first letters) of expressions, a sort of wheels-within-wheels word play. Part 2 in August gave examples from common idioms and sayings. Here are examples from a wide variety of quotations, familiar and not. All results - paraphrases, follow-ons and 'antonyms' - are combined in alphabetical order by author, except for a dozen of the more successful efforts which are featured on this page in no particular order.
