What is an anagram?

Anagrams date back as far as 440 BC. They were used by Cicero and Julius Caesar and can still be found in popular usage today.

An anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of another. For example, the word "friend" can be rearranged to become "finder".

In English usage, there are three types of anagrams: transposals, substitutions and expansions.

  • In transposition, some changes are made in the order of letters but none is removed or added.
  • In substitution, one letter replaces another without any effect on the pronunciation of the result.
  • An expansion adds letters with no effect on the pronunciation of the result.

How to unscramble an anagram?

As a human, you would solve an anagram through deduction. You'd look at the letters that already exist, then cross off possibilities for unstated letters.
