It's been so long since I've assembled any kind of specimen book
that I've forgotten nearly all the sentences that contain all the
letters of the alphabet!

The only one I found with a quick search is "How razorback-jumping
frogs can level six piqued gymnasts."

I can't remember the correct wording for "The quick brown fox . . .
" or any of the other nonsense sentences that contain every character.

If anyone recalls these various sentences, I'd certainly appreciate
it if you would post them here.

Thanks.

The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.

Never heard of the other one. Kind of like it.

If you look through David Lemon's previous postings, you will find that he
includes a 'pangram' (that's what they're called) as a part of his
signature. I have collected 50-60 of them in that way.

The end "s back" is useless. "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"
is enough.

Yes, there are lots of these. However, this one is commonly
misquoted, as it has been here. It's "jumps" not "jumped"
otherwise it contains no S.

Well, really it richly deserves some energy wasted on it.

I'd espected a lot of answers to this posting, so was keeping quiet
about my two poor offerings. The first was very well known and was
used as a practice sentence by Renaissance writing masters. It's a
perfect classical hexameter line, too. It's only a pangram for Latin,
though - a language that doesn't distinguish between i and j or
between u and v, and has no w. The second I lifted from a posting
here last year. Maybe it's one of David Lemon's.

Alas, as i said last year in this list, this is not a true French pangram: The
French language needs more than 40 letters, here they are only 26...

Here is one in LaTeX form (for even Iso-Latin-1 does not offer all French
letters!):

A Collection of Word Oddities and Trivia
https://jeff560.tripod.com/words9.html

PANGRAMS
Pangrams are sentences containing all the letters of the alphabet.
Pangram is in the Oxford English Dictionary, 2nd ed., with the earliest
citation from 1964, although the word pangrammatic goes back to 1933.

Here is a list of pangrams compiled from various sources. The number of
letters used is shown for most of them. The shortest ones are obviously
contrived and use obscure words only found in unabridged dictionaries.
One even uses a Roman numeral. Stuart Kidd assisted with this
compilation.
