26 Words, Each Beginning With A Consecutive Letter Of The Alphabet.



Recommended Posts

I was asked to help a 16 year old with an English language examination paper, quite why I should be so blessed is beyond me. The task was to write a piece of English language that began with a consecutive letter of the alphabet and actually made sense.

 

No easy task.

 

As in “ A Brown Cow, Daisy, Eats Flowers Growing Higgledy-Piggledy In…..

 

Can you make your own version?

A besotted camel departed early Friday going home; I just kept laughing merrily noting one person quickly responded, “See, that undulating voyaging wasteland Xebec yonder zooms”.

Phew!!! I'm rather proud of that!

In a similiar vein, George Perec wrote La Disparition - a novel written in French but without the letter "e". Then Gibert Adair translated it into English (A Void) with the same constraint though both probably without much literary merit! I believe these are called lipograms (Where's the vocabulary thread when you need it. :D)

Yesterday is history.

Tomorrow is a mystery.

Today is a gift.

That's why it's called the present

All bases considered, doing everything for good habeneros is jeopordising kitchens. Long manifestos' nature of preliminary queues, rather, show that use varies while xeric yams zero.

 

Makes grammatical sense. Still nonsensical. The first sentence is good, the rest not so much.

I don't think I could make up a sentence that would fit but I'm sure you could find lots of examples on Google. Have you tried that? How would you even go about searching for something like this?

Alas, boorish Charlie! Don't ever forget great, handsome ideologues justly kill leering Mauritanians nibbling on peanuts. Quit rehashing silly tripe until, verily, we xenophobes yield zeppelins.

A bright cat, deeply energetic feline Greebo, hating idiots just keeping Lord Moxon's new online place quiz-free, resourcefully set teasers users verified were x-rated yet zippy!

A bashful companion does envy foolish guile. However, I just keep laughing. Magnificent, not ordinary, people quest restlessly, striving toward untold victory warily xenophobic, yet zealous.

As my wife said to me just the other day...

 

'Another bloody collection! Don't ever forget getting healthy is justifiably king. Loving me, not overpriced pens, quickly relieves stress. To understand voids we x-ray your zygoma!'

 

She loves me really

Very impressive - and it actually makes some sense.

Backwards:

 

Zaftig Yolanda, xiphoid wavering, voluptuously unveiling two silkily rotund quadriceps, peeling off nebulous mantillas, lovingly kissed Jude's inconstant hand, garnering from every delighted caress blissful accesses.

When you're good at it, it's really miserable.
