Anagrams
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Do you want to have some fun with words? Try rearranging the letters of a word to make another word. For instance, the letters in the word "art" can be rearranged to make both "tar" and "rat." The word "funeral" can be turned into the phrase "real fun." This type of word play is called the anagram.
 
2     The only rule to successful anagramming is that all the letters in the original word must be used in the new word or phrase. Each letter may only be used one time. "Art" cannot be anagrammed as "tart" because the original word only has one "t." The person who can successfully create anagrams is called an anagrammatist.
 
3     Chances are that for as long as there has been an alphabet, there have been people who enjoy word play, including anagrams. One way to create an anagram is to write a word on paper, marking out each letter as it is used in a new word. An easier way to create anagrams is to use letter tiles like the ones in the game called Scrabble®. After using the tiles to make a word, you can try rearranging the letters to see if you can make other words or phrases. However, there is one other way of making anagrams, and it is the easiest method ever invented!
