Hi, I'm Laura from and I'm going to talk about how to make an anagram. An anagram is a word that wherein the letters are rearranged to make a different word. Sometimes a phrase can also be used. So you could use, rearrange the letters of the words in each phrase, of each word of the phrase to make a different phrase. That's a little bit more complicated version of it. The first step in making an anagram is to begin to move the letters around until you see some sort of pattern that might be pronounceable, so you know that your not going to put three consonants next to each other. You're trying to create another word that makes sense. So start with a word with not too many letters for your first attempt at making an anagram and begin to play with until you come up with a combination of letter sounds that makes a word that is recognizable. There are software programs that you can use where you enter in a word or a group of words and it will actually generate combinations of anagrams for you. This can be a much more efficient way to do it and you can actually find a web based anagram maker that will give you a lot of options. So those are some ideas about how to make an anagram.
