Can a sentence be made by using all the letters in the alphabet?
Each letter must be used only once.
I just saw your added note, "each letter can be used only once." In that case, the answer is "no," I'm almost sure. The classic below has 36 letters (not counting spaces), and I believe it is the shortest ever found.
If you allow repeat letters, then:
Yes. The classic - used to test typewriters, is "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog." Such a sentence is called a pangram, and Cat on a Soapbox wrote a hub about them here: http://cat-on-a-soapbox.hubpages.com/hu … -a-Pangram
For a funny pangram, read my comment below the hub.
Thank you, Sid! I love your creative example and the fun story behind it.
I've added to this with a whole new hub: Pangram Geek Games: From A to Z to the Star Trek Galaxy: http://sidkemp.hubpages.com/hub/PanGram … rek-Galaxy Enjoy
There is one sentence that uses every letter of the alphabet.
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
It's purpose was for typing practice. But I'm not aware of the sentence you are referring to.
The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog - a line used to practice typing..
No, it's not possible. If you know such a sentence, do share it with me.
A pangram is a sentence that contains all the letters in the alphabet. Try being a word geek: Making pangrams - and variations - can be a lot of fun! read more
The only one I can think of is The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog But there are some letters that are used more than once. So I don't know if there is a sentence that is only 26 letter long. Great question

Are some letters in the alphabet useless ? Some would say "Q"... In theory, Q saves us writing out two letters, the k and w, however as one must always add "u", we save no time by having that letter.
