Interesting anagrams from any text

7


7 per unit - Virtual OK

I will take virtually any type of text (a brief excerpt from a book, newspaper article, song lyric - you name it) and try to develop an anagrammed version of it that is both interesting and actually meaningful in some way.

If you're unfamiliar with anagrams, allow me to explain. Anagrams are formed by rearranging the letters of a particular word, phrase, or name in such a way that they form entirely new words. One popular example of this was one anagram created by Jim Morrison, who rearranged the letters in his name for the Doors' song "L.A. Woman" to create the line "Mr. Mojo Risin'." Anagrams were also widely used in Dan Brown's novel The Da Vinci Code. The best anagrams are clever and inventive. But they're definitely uncanny in many cases too. Here are a few more fun examples:

Slot machines = Cash lost in 'em
Payment received = Every cent paid me
Conversation = Voices rant on
The public art galleries = Large picture halls, I bet
Election results = Lies; let's recount

Let me know what text you'd like to pull from (within a reasonable limit of a paragraph or less, of course - remember that this process can be very time-consuming and cumbersome with certain word and letter combinations if the goal is getting everything totally perfect).

When possible, I like to be able to follow the suggestions of specialists Richard Brodie and Michael Keith, who worked on "The Anagrammed Bible." They suggest that a truly good anagram shouldn't be meaningless, but should somehow reflect some of the meaning of the original words. The original letters also ought to be scrambled so much that the anagrams completely avoid the direct repeating of whole words. Brodie's and Keith's work on developing line-by-line anagrams for the entire books of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon has set an incredible bar that I try to emulate in my own work.

Training & Qualifications


Aside from having my Bachelor's in English, I also have a library with a number of classic and modern works centered on anagrams and their use in various languages. I've had a fascination with this curiosity of language for quite some time now. Being an anagrammatist has simply been a favorite hobby of mine in my free time.

About Chris Bacavis

I'm a teacher, writer, editor, and researcher living in Colorado Springs. Outside of tutoring student writers on a regular basis, I've also worked as a senior research fellow with the Institute for Pu...blic Dialogue, a rabid freelancer partnering with businesses and non-profits, and a consultant filing numerous Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of investigative reporters. My politically oriented and academic writing has been published on my own blog (blog.chrisbacavis.com), Reformed Libertarian, and Freedom Bunker, while my creative writing has been featured in Empirical Magazine, The Penwood Review, The Dial, and the short story collection Fireside Dreams. I earned my Bachelor's in English, with a Communication minor, from the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs (UCCS). Since then, I've continued to do English/communication tutoring, freelance editing, and research work for more than a dozen business, creative, and education-oriented clients. I also have at least two years of experience in editing written content for self-published authors, specifically nonfiction/journalism, fiction, and short stories. I'm most motivated by opportunities that I know will benefit and shape me in terms of developing relationships, acquiring skills, and building in knowledge. As such, I'm always seeking out new experiences and looking for unique ways in which to fulfill that desire on my part. Simbi has become a wonderful venue in which to carry that out. show more
