6-Letter Pangram FinderDirections
You will be given sets of 6 letters in alphabetical order. There is one and only one 6-letter word which uses all 6 letters and is in the top 50,000 English words according to the Corpus of Contemporary American English. You get 20 seconds for each of the 20 6-letter scrambled words to find the pangram (6-letter word using all 6 letters). Object is most pangrams correct. There are about 1700 different pangrams from which 20 are chosen at random.
Something about this is off. I think it excludes, for example, past tense of verbs. There’s no way “debark” is in the top 50,000 words but barked or braked is not.
it sounds strange – but according to the source https://www.english-corpora.org/coca/browse.asp debark is in the top 50000 whereas the other words aren’t, and yes that corpus includes verb tenses. A lot of word frequency depends on the corpus used.
