Do You Want to Rearrange Your Words?

Until recently, I hadn’t know what anagram is. I stumbled upon a website which rearranges the letters of any word that you write. This is amazing because this website shows more options than one can think just looking at the letters. I like it a lot and I want to share it with you. Maybe you also enjoy seeing how many options one may have!

What is an Anagram?

noun: A word or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of another word or phrase.

verb: To rearrange letters in such a way. To anagrammatize.

How does it work?

You just type the word you want:

Then you click on “Get anagrams” to see how many words you can have by rearranging the positions of the letters:

The only thing I do not like is that you can sometimes have words without any meaning (at least in English). I guess the computer gives all the possible rearrangements regardless of their meanings.

Anyway, it is a good and an interesting service especially for us, the language lovers. You can give it a try- after all it is free 🙂

  2. I would like to let you know that there is an ITALIAN automatic (that is, web-based) engine for anagrams, working since 1996 (!).
    Here is the site: http://www.nightgaunt.org/anagrams/anagrams.htm
    Please note that you are supposed to start with a phrase or a sentence, NOT single words – in any case, do not use words with accents (such as, è, à etc.).
    Byes

  3. Hi everybody! I would like to let you know that there is another anagram-engine, running since 1996 (!).
    Here is the site: http://www.nightgaunt.org/anagrams/anagrams.htm
    However, it is in ITALIAN and you are supposed to enter an entire phrase or sentence, NOT single words (and in any case without accents, such as é, à etc.).
    Cheerio!
