Eits.. Ini bukan magic lho..

Apa sih istimewanya kalimat itu?
Kalimat itu merupakan yang tersusun atas semua alfabet, dari a hingga z. Kalimat inilah yang disebut dengan pangram (Greek: pan gramma, "every letter"). Microsoft Windows menggunakan kalimat tersebut untuk memperlihatkan font-font yang ada dalam komputer.

Pangram tersebut dipilih karena relatif pendek, serta memiliki arti.

Bahkan ada kalimat yang hanya terdiri dari 26 huruf, yang artinya setiap hurufnya digunakan 1 kali saja (kalimat ini disebut dengan perfect pangram).

Oit.. Kalian tidak perlu susah payah mencarinya, karena semuanya sudah ditemukan oleh *orang-orang* yang kurang kerjaan... Lebih baik kita menatapnya saja, dan bilang saja "kagum"... Hehehe..

Bagaimana? Pusink bukan? Iya.. Saya juga.. ;P.

Sebetulnya, kalau kalian lihat lagi di bagian sumber yang kucantumkan (wikipedia), akan ada banyak sekali pangram di sana, bahkan pangram dalam bahasa Cina, Korea, Jepang, Rusia, Spanyol, dan sebagainya. Kalau kalian search pangram dalam bahasa Indonesia, sepertinya pangram itu tak akan menarik (dan juga ngak ada) karena huruf-huruf V, W, X, Y, dan Z merupakan huruf yang sangat susah sekali diterapkan dalam kalimat, apalagi dipakai bersama-sama.. Ha3.

Sekedar memberi sedikit info.. Ada juga istilah lipogram (temennya pangram :P). Lipogram (Greek lipagrammatos, "missing letter") merupakan suatu kalimat (atau puisi) panjang yang melarang penggunaan beberapa huruf tertentu yang dominan.

Perhatikan contoh puisi berikut:
Bold Nassan quits his caravan,
A hazy mountain grot to scan;
Climbs jaggy rocks to find his way,
Doth tax his sight, but far doth stray.

Not work of man, nor sport of child
Finds Nassan on this mazy wild;
Lax grow his joints, limbs toil in vain—
Poor wight! why didst thou quit that plain?

Vainly for succour Nassan calls;
Know, Zillah, that thy Nassan falls;
But prowling wolf and fox may joy
To quarry on thy Arab boy.

Puisi di atas sama sekali tidak menggunakan huruf "e", huruf yang sangat dominan dalam bahasa Inggris. Tentunya, akan sangat susah sekali untuk membuat lipogram.. ~_~. Huee.. Biarkanlah orang-orang kurang kerjaan aja yang membuat hal semacam ini.. Tapi, jangan bilang kalo yang nulis blog ini juga kurang kerjaan.. Wkwk.
