    It contains every letter of the alphabet!
    Although I don’t think it would be unique in that respect, as I’m sure there are other sentences with every letter of the alphabet (and shorter ones, too).

    it uses all the letters of the alphabet. I am not sure if it would be possible to use all the letters of the alphabet in a sentence only once or at least the same amount of times.

    Every letter of the alphabet is used. By the way, the sentense is not truly unique. A few variations exist, for example “The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog.”

    this sentence contains all the alphabet letters. In the brazilian version of Ms Word you can type: rand(200,35) press [enter] and it will generate pages and pages with it. its great to train typing.

    “The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over A Lazy Dog” is an example of a pangram: A saying that uses every letter of the alphabet, A-Z.


  17. sebbie3000 | Profile

    This one’s easy – it uses every letter of the alphabet. Although, that doesn’t really make it unique though, does it? Actually , on second thoughts, I may be wrong (and I don’t often admit that)…


  18. NitzOO | Profile

    Because it has all the letters in the alphabet.


  19. Peter Grabarchuk | PUZZLE MASTER | Profile

    As I understand, in this sentence there are all letters of the English alphabet. It is pangram. But some letters can be found more then once.


    Another version similar version is: “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”.


    It is almost impossible to write the perfect pangram, which used all letters of the English alphabet only once and has good sense. More about this you can find in Weikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pangram).


    In particular this sentence is used in computer programs which works with fonts. With the help of this sentence it is possible to see the look of each letter of the alphabet.

    because it contains all the letters of the alphabet and you still get an oreo left


  21. lograh | Profile

    Well, I know I usually use that sentence when testing a keyboard since it has every letter of the alphabet in it. I can’t imagine that is the only possible sentence with that property, though. Might not even be the shortest such sentence possible, ‘o’ is typed multiple times for example.
