What are anagrams?

Anagrams are among the most popular word games, and our affinity for them often begins in childhood. What’s more, anagrams are an important stylistic device in literature and in the world of espionage they’re used for encrypting correspondence.

When you rearrange the letters of a word to produce other meaningful words, you’re creating anagrams. For example, rearranging the letters of secure forms the word rescue. Some words cannot yield any meaningful anagrams, while others can produce several, such as the triple anagram angel-angle-glean. Anagrams can also be created with phrases and even complete sentences, such as "debit card – bad credit" or "I think therefore I am – I fear to think I’m here".

A special type of anagram is the palindrome. This is typically an anagram which, when read both forwards and backwards, produces the same word, such as "level" or "racecar". As with anagrams, there are palindromes which form phrases and even complete sentences, such as "top spot " or "A man, a plan, a canal – Panama".

The word anagram originates from the Greek words ana (back, backwards) and  gramma (letter). The ancient Greeks certainly enjoyed creating anagrams and even today they are still one of the most popular types of word puzzles.

The Hellenistic Greek poet Lycrophon is credited as the first person to use anagrams in one of his homages. Since then, anagrams have enjoyed immense popularity in the world of literature. They appear as a stylistic device in Dante’s Divine Comedy, and many poets and authors have published their works using anagrammed pseudonyms, such as the poet Paul Celan, whose real name was Paul Ancel.
