An anagram is a word, a sentence, or a phrase made by transposing
or rearranging the letters of another word or phrase. The anagram
is also a poetic technique that can be reapplied to units other
than the letter. Each anagram must contain every letter in the initial
paragraph, with none added and none omitted.
An anagram is the result of permuting the letters of a word or
words in such a manner as to produce other words that possess linguistic
meaning. The meaning of the new word so created is seen in the context
of or in contrast to that of the old word so as to create humorous
or interesting associations between the two. Anagrams are a type
of word play.
Anagrams often result in hidden meanings.
